Shacknews exclusive: A chapter from the book of Blizzard

Today, we kick off a week of coverage on David Craddock's upcoming book on Blizzard Entertainment, Stay Awhile and Listen. He has been working on the book since mid-2008, and he talks to nearly 80 former employees, including those who used to work at Blizzard, Condor (later Blizzard North), and Silicon & Synapse (Blizzard's original name when it was founded), as well as people who had regular dealings with Blizzard head honchos Mike Morhaime and Allen Adham.

Here's the schedule:

Stay with us all week and have fun reading. Special thanks to David Craddock for allowing us to post the chapter and working with us for the last three months to bring it to you. The book launches next year, and will be published by Digital Monument Press.
