It’s time for a history lesson, kids!

Valve introduced Steam in late 2003 with two aims in mind: content delivery and community cohesion. Six years later, Dan Hsu and Demian Linn soft-launched Bitmob with equally lofty goals. Although the two have no formal connection, both the website and the service are incredibly powerful tools in their own realms. When used together, Bitmob and Steam could create a compelling, community-driven illegitimate child. With that in mind, I’d like to encourage more activity within the Bitmob Steam group. Sorties in Star Trek Online, skirmishes in  Modern Warfare 2, and questing in Borderlands will be more satisfying once you’re surrounded by the mature, intelligent community members of Bitmob.

Whether you’re a lifelong role-playing fan or a casual first-person shooter, I’m certain you’ll find other like-minded members. So head over to Steam, launch Modern Warfare 2, and invite Demian Linn to your Team Domination game — he makes a great human shield!
