Thanks for the feedback! That sounds like an awesome position - I'd love to read some articles about what it was like to be on that research team 🙂.
If I can remember anything I'll write it up, it was a seriously long time ago and I was on the periphery working in BT Wireplay (then Gameplay.com) creating an on-line multi-player network, helping game developers get the networking right (many made similar assumptions based on LAN games that do not work well!).
I do remember a specific problem they were addressing known as the 'Death Star Problem', how do you handle thousands of players in a single space, with large malleable objects and unpredictable events... no biggie :)
