Creator of Minecraft Divvies Up $3 Million Among Employees

Markus 'Notch' Persson announced the act of singular generosity via Twitter: "Before tax, my dividends from Mojang for 2011 was about three million dollars. I chose to distribute that to the other employees." Kotaku anthropologists are guessing a cake will be waiting upon his desk tomorrow morning.


What is it with Notch, and him having to make everything he does public? Did he not think that perhaps his colleagues didn't want this to be known, that it may cause them unwanted attention?

I don't know the guy, I don't play Minecraft, but he just needs to reign himself in a little.
