Who is Michel Musters

card_andyr_small.gifWe want to apply our people centric focus to what we read as well as what we play. To that end, we have recently launched the new Blogging People set of cards.

The first brave sole to step up was Michel Musters of Moz La Punk. Along with a shiney new Blogger Card (Top Trumps style of course), we interview each new blogger. Here are some choice excerpts from the interview:

MozLaPunk:Moz La Punk can bring you news in a laid back way, without avoiding opinions, as long as they’re placed in a context so people know they are opinions (there is the objectivity again), and a place where lots of editorials and columns could really shine.

AndyR: It is interesting as this comes back to communities and groups. We need to enable visitors to feel like they can hang out and read in surroundings that they identify as their own. You see this in larger record stores that have different areas for different types of music, the people you find in each section are very different.

MozLaPunk: Indeed, and it is funny that you mention that because gaming is so behind in this. Why on earth are stores categorizing games by consoles? There is a Playstation section, a Wii section, a handheld section, Xbox section, PC section. You don’t see this with other types of entertainment products.

AndyR: I guess there is a balance to be struck. What I have been realising at Game People, it is better to establish a handful of quality community dwellers than to have a mass of people who flit in and out.
MozLaPunk: Exactly, I am of the same opinion. At MLP there have always been certain members who seem to never go away even if you’d try, and I’m grateful for that. They are the base you start out with, and the trick is to keep expanding that while you keep that base satisfied.

    I’m also here to answer further questions if needed.

    Anyway – some folks that are checking out my blog right now might wonder why things have gone so silent. Well, apart from a good old cold I caught last week and a new PC that replaced my old one, we are once again trying to take MLP a step further. After doing this interview I realised I didn’t do everything according to my own vision of how things should be done – so brainstorming is being done on that subject with the rest of the MLP crew right now.

    Sorry to hear you’ve been out of action for a while. Although it is heartening to think that our conversation may have been a useful time to reflect on priorities for you work, and take stock of how far you have come.

    I can’t wait to see the step you take into new games writing, know that you’re not alone.
