Podcast Episode #93 - Revisiting NeoHabitat with Randy Farmer

Habitat, and its final version Club Caribe, was one of the world's first MMORPGs: an immersive, graphical, virtual world populated by C64 users in real time through the Quantumlink Network. Randy Farmer is one of the original architects of that world, and he remains involved in maintaining the project to this day. He joins AJ and Joerg to talk about the challenges behind creating the original Habitat, as well as resurrecting it, and the unique ways in which it has influenced culture, law, and modern MMORPGs. (Interview begins at 12:00)
