Who wrote what lines?


#21

Oh, I sure can!

:fearful: wait what were we talking about again?


#22

I believe we were about to find the ultimate answers to these questions:

  • Why is there something rather than nothing?
  • Is our universe real?
  • Do we have free will?
  • Can you really experience anything objectively?

But I guess we got distracted.


#23

Hmm, makes you think…


#24

It would be great if @jenn and @RonGilbert could pop down to offer any recollections, then we’d have all four writers having given their own embellishments of the writing responsibilities!


#25

If you don’t think of them as 0/1, false/true, you’ll be more true to truth.

That’s the second worst representation of the Myth of the cave by Plato I’ve ever seen.


#26

It’s a meta-allegory. :wink:


#27

My goal with the writing on TWP was to hire really great people I trusted so I could screw around and not do very much real work. It’s the secret to great project management.


#28

We’ve already had two staff testimonies that elude to the fact that you did actually write a lot of the dialog :wink:


#29

You could contribute a lot in the form of ideas, outlines and first drafts (“screw around”) without doing the bulk of the actual (re)writing, editing and cutting.


#30

Maybe Ron has paid them for their statements…? :thinking:


#31

I remember @jenn telling me she wrote a lot of Franklin, including his ghostly verb options, when I met her at the London event.

And continuing what @RonGilbert said about hiring smart talented people, I remember being impressed and thinking @jenn fit that bill during our brief chat. Clearly a well put together team behind TP!


#32

The real question on kids’ minds today is:
Do we have free wifi?


#33

Let’s just quote you on that for eternity! :slight_smile:


#34

That is the proof it was done right! It would feel wrong if one could tell by the style change that dialog was written by different people.


#35

I’m also interested in who designed which puzzles! E.g. did @David design any of the puzzles?


#36

I spawned the idea for the tallness of the Occult bookstore.


#37

I thought it was “just” a trope. Nice job!


#38


#39

Heh, one of @RonGilbert’s supposedly infamous typos. :slight_smile:


#40

No. He meant exactly that. He is comically tall, now.
