Is it possible for some sort of integration with services like Pandora and Spotify, in the future? I don’t have a music library, per se, and mostly just use internet radio, so it’d be great if I didn’t have to alt tab to change stations or skip songs. Could this happen?

Gabe

Yes, we’ve got some things in the works that we think you’ll like.

Do you ever play games such as tf2 on a secret steam account?

Gabe

What improvements will we see out of the Source 2 engine?

Gabe

The biggest improvements will be in increasing productivity of content creation. That focus is driven by the importance we see UGC having going forward. A professional developer at Valve will put up with a lot of pain that won’t work if users themselves have to create content.

Why did you choose “Valve” as the company name?

Gabe

Because it was better than “Rhino Scar”
