Daniel Kaplan's Blog


Hello :)

I work at Mojang, the creator of Minecraft, as a biz/project manager of some sort. Titles here are not so important so that is why it is diffuse. I do all kind of different things but the majority of my time goes to managing Minecraft on consoles and mobile and also some  external dev relationship things.

I will write blog posts here every now and then about things that I hope you will enjoy too. Mostly my thoughts about design in games and gadgets :)

You can read a longer "about me" here.
