I just answered some question via e-mail regarding the strike (a college student interview).
Mostly repeated what I've already said here -- how the writer's deserve more money, how neither side is acting like nice children, etc.
Here's a question I haven't answered for y'all, so here goes:
3. What do you feel will be the final outcome of the strike?
Here’s my prediction: Both sides will announce how they totally humiliated the other side and got a deal so sweet that their a. guild members or b. stockholders should lift them on their shoulders and parade them around town as heroes.
Then in three months, it will be back to claiming that our side (whichever side you want, as both will say this) got totally hosed in the deal, and just wait until next time when we really show them!
Just my thoughts,
