That is an impressive resume! I'm a professional gamer and just new to Rift and am comforted by the fact that someone with experience such as yours makes a reference to a 'world class team'. The other interesting thing that brought my jaded self to try Rift is that a reviewer used the phrase somewhat akin to 'a culmination of best practices in contemporary mmo'. I've long thought this must be the starting point for any new mmo or what would be the point? Another Norrath rehash...?
I've been around since Verant and EQ1 beta with the mobile_object_01 and table top going back to 1973, was a huge fan of Vanguard, EQ2, and love to play the 'dark side' of any game (just hanging out in Nek forest was cleansing) so I can't wait to see what fresh meat you and your crew bring to the table here.
I can't believe I'm excited to play an MMO again. See you in game and Cheers!
I posted this way off in the depths of the Addon forums, but I thought I'd post it here also.
My name's Ben and I'm a member of the UI team. I've developed a lot of smaller features (like the Public Group system) but now my main job is lead developer of the addon system. I'm going to be paying close attention to the Addon forum and giving out technical support occasionally.
I've been working in the game industry on and off for around a decade, taking a break to go back to school and put in a few years at Google. I was also heavily involved in the MMO addon scene for about two years. I'm going to be using my addon experience to make Rift's addon system as good as I possibly can.
You have no idea how excited I am to see what people make with it.

Holy crap. Are you ZorbaTheHutt as in the dude who worked on QuestHelper in WoW?
I would just like to say "Keep up the great work!". I am loving RIFT very much and this game is a real power house that I would like to see grow and grow. Love the graphics, lore and gameplay so far. Myself and friends of mine moved over from WoW and are not looking back.
Just wanted to give a hearty hello. I remember talking to a certain someone about this game before it was a game back in the vanguard days. It's nice to see some of the things we discussed about actually came to fruition.

Thanks for all the quick work with the hotfixes, just wondering if Trion chooses to go public will we get a notice in our newsletter? Whats it like being a Dev btw? Always wondered how you get into that.
