Journalist Beau Hindman Video Interview of Michael Hartman of Frogdice/Threshold RPG

We all share the frustration of how hard it is to get mainstream gaming coverage about MUDs. But there is at least one major web site writer who has taken a serious interest in MUDs. I think this is a great development for our community.

Beau Hindman has written a number of articles at about MUDs. To my knowledge he has covered at least Threshold RPG, Bat Mud, Gemstone IV, and Aardwolf.

He has a genuine love for MUDs and my hope is that he will keep writing about MUDs.

Last night he invited Michael Hartman to participate in another project of his called "Gamer Hangout."

Gamer Hangout, a weekly vidcast for gamers who like to talk about, you know, games, toys, tech and all sorts of geeky stuff. We mention MMORPGs mostly, but we do talk about everything in gaming culture. We'll even occasionally throw in some pop culture or toy talk, so keep an ear out. We usually go live each Wednesday around 10:30 EDT. Join Beau, ( @Beau_Hindman ) Cindy ( @gamelatte ) and a different guest host each week to talk all about games!
The vidcast is shown live but apparently most people watch it later on YouTube:

Gamer Hangout: Talking with Frogdice's Michael Hartman about 20 years in the biz!

Unfortunately there were technical issues that negatively impacted the audio on Michael's end. He plugged TopMudSites at one point during the interview - hopefully people can hear that part clearly and will come visit the site.

Beau Hindman (@beau_hindman on twitter) is a rare mainstream gaming media journalist who has a serious love for MUDs and writes about them as often as he can. That's definitely something very cool for us. He thinks MUDs have an opportunity to resurge in popularity thanks to mobile devices where MUDs actually perform well. I think he's right!

Beau was pretty great when he stopped by and played Gemstone IV for a few days also. I always check him out over on Massively.

Achaea as well. Beau is the best friend MUDs have in anything approaching mainsteam media (Massively is not exactly mainstream, but we can't be picky in MUDs!).
