I'm a hobbyist and co-organizer of the Seattle/Tacoma interactive fiction meetup group. No relation to the science fiction author in Philadelphia.

“The policy was soon established that explorers were expected to survey the passages they explored, preferably while exploring them. Some cavers said that this destroyed the spontaneity of exploring virgin cave, and others were not interested in making maps. Those who became Flint Ridge cavers accepted surveying as an integral part of exploring, and for many of them, making the map is one of the central pleasures of caving.”
—Roger W. Brucker and Richard A. Watson, The Longest Cave, 1976.

“It’s like making crossword puzzles. You write down a clue and you think it’s too idiotically simple and that everyone will guess it straight off, and you’re frightfully surprised when they simply can’t get it in the least.”
—Agatha Christie, Why Didn't They Ask Evans?, 1934.
