Valve's Michael Abrash has shared some additional insight this Friday morning.

That's his response to a question he's often asked: "What should I study in college/learn to do/work at to get hired at Valve/have a good career/have a good life?"

The blog post can be found at blogs.valvesoftware.com where Abrash goes into detail about becoming involved with computer programming at university, etc.
