Things you should know before watching the video:

  • Don Hopkins worked with Will Wright and the original Sims, creating The Sims Transmogrifier, the famous object-creation tool.
  • He persuaded EA into releasing the original SimCity as an open source project, but could not gain the rights of using the actual name, thus labeling it ‘Micropolis’
  • He just recently was invited by Will Wright to join the Stupid Fun Club, so you’ll be hearing more from him in the future (welcome back, Don)
  • His presentation starts at 7:19 seconds in (the first video), then jumps to the second video
