At GDC, I picked up a (free) copy of a magazine promoting Iceland's burgeoning game development industry. Apparently, in the wake of the financial meltdown, lots of unemployed people are willing to follow their dreams of creating fun.

There's a great quote from Hilmar Veigar Pe'tursson, of CCP (who make EVE Online): "Must not fail? We're not good at that. We fail all the time! I often say, "Don't ask an Icelander to build a boat". Never do that. Never go on a boat built by an Icelander. But if you are on a boat and it's sinking, grab on to the Icelander! He will get you out of the mess. I don't know how they do it, but they do that stuff all the time."

That is just plain awesome.
