The secret of Minecraft


“Five years in, Minecraft (the system) has bloomed into something bigger and more beautiful than any game studio—whether a tiny one like Markus Persson’s or a huge one like EA—could ever produce on its own. The scale of it is staggering; overwhelming. As you explore the extended Minecraft-verse online, you start to get the same oceanic feeling that huge internet systems like YouTube and Twitter often inspire: the mingling of despair (“I’ll never see it all”) with delight (“People made this”) with dizzying anthropic awe (“So… many… people.”)

Turns out you can do a lot with those blocks.”
