You guys have got the Steam OS all wrong

Steam is not a one-way content broadcast channel, itís a collaborative many-to-many entertainment platform, in which each participant is a multiplier of the experience for everyone else.

Valve's said it themselves, the people that make TF2 items and maps make more money than the devs of TF2 do.

That's the many, providing entertainment to the many. Thank Valve for creating this infrastructure for us to do this.

I guess that make sense in that context. A game can have many content developers, and a content developer can develop content for many games. Although it would still work like that if you exclude user-generated content so it would still be many-to-many.

I don't know why they're using database development terminology to describe a product meant to simplify things.

wait i dont understand any of this really, but is he saying that people who have modded the game make more money off of it than the actual devs, or is this done by people involved with the regular game?
