Another part of my roller-coaster 2002 was the formation of a legal business entity to handle all that money I was supposed to make from Marketing: My Biggest Failure – Battle of Midway CD-Rom. With all of the experience I had working on things for USNI that I carried over to the good parts of that same project, I knew I wanted to keep doing military history content. It was the perfect way to fuse two passions into millions of dollars of Internet money.
So I formed a company that would obviously resonate as experts of military history.
Sun Tzu Interactive.
If you don’t know, Sun Tzu wrote The Art of War. That is like … kind of a big deal as far as military goes. He was an old-timey Chinese general. Historians debate the actual details. So I will leave it to you to Google him or jump straight over to Wikipedia and look for yourself.
Anyway … so I had the brilliant idea of putting a computer mouse in an ancient Chinese warmaster’s hand. In the intro of the CD-ROM it’s animated: he moves the mouse and clicks.
