Killer Betties find a Killer Woman
Killer Betties find a Killer Woman [ Game -> Interview ]

The Killer Betties are at it again. This time they're not complaining about UIs too complex for their poor womens' brains to handle, but profiling Valerie "Pann" Massey, the Community Coordinator at NCsoft, publishers of Auto Assault.
Do you feel you are advantaged or disadvantaged as a female in an industry so dominated by men?

I sincerely feel that my being a woman has nothing to do with it, though I will certainly acknowledge that women are still in the minority in the industry overall. There was never a time at Simon and Schuster Interactive or at NCsoft that I felt being a woman had any bearing on how I was treated or my ideas were received. Maybe it's different at other companies and I've been really lucky not to have worked for them.

It's a slightly more intelligent interview than the last one, so I don't have much to say, apart from pointing out that Valerie says she "married someone I met through Ultima Online." It seems every person I read about has married someone from Ultima Online.
