Gabe Newell Discusses the Business of Valve (VIDEO)

If you’re looking for some insights into the inner workings of PC powerhouse developer Valve, look no further than this hour-long lecture CEO Gabe Newell gave at the University of Texas’ LBJ School of Public Affairs.

In it, Newell discusses things like the philosophy of Valve and why it works for the company (Newell himself is reportedly worth $1 billion) and its interesting internal structure. There’s also some discussion of the Steam Workshop, which has been a huge success for Valve in a lot of different ways.

The video clocks in at just over an hour, so clear your schedule.
