Massively Speaking Episode 171

Get offa my lawn!
Massively Speaking Episode 171 returns this week as Shawn and Rubi are joined by Justin Olivetti to talk about the week's MMO news. Topics include DC Universe Online's jump to free-to-play, MechWarrior Online, Earth Eternal's hold status, layoffs in the industry, and our mini-celebration of Massively's 4th birthday.

As a very special bonus to this week's episode, we also have an interview with Tiny Speck's Stewart Butterfield. Not only is Stewart the co-creator of Glitch, but he is also a co-founder of Flickr and was once named one of Time Magazine's 100 most influential people in the world. Oh yeah, he was on the cover of Newsweek, too.
