Software Engineer or Manager?[edit]

The article doesn't say anything what role was he in Microsoft. Was he a software engineer or on some managerial role?36.85.185.192 (talk) 13:59, 18 December 2015 (UTC)

I actually came across something about this while trying to clarify yesterday if his official title was "Managing Director", which is typically a British usage, or "CEO". The official directory on Valve's site suggests he held management, or at least "project management", type positions. -- ferret (talk)

Capitalization request[edit]

The N in GabeN should be capitalized, as GabeN means GabeNewell.

Actually "Gaben" comes from his email address, gaben@valvesoftware.com, and due to the internet, the pronounciation was edged to "Gaben" instead of "Gabe N.". This is also what Gabe himself and some colleagues use in some tweets as well. Thus, I think it is kind of "official" to say Gaben, but GabeN is just what the other half of Reddit tries to make it.
