    I randomly clicked on this one:

    > Anna Kang left Id a couple weeks ago to found her own company - Fountainhead Entertainment.

    > It wasn't generally discussed during her time at Id, but we had been going out when she joined the company, and we were engaged earlier this year. We are getting married next month, and honeymooning in Hawaii. At her thoughtful suggestion, we are shipping a workstation out with us, so I don't fall into some programming-deprivation state. How great is that? :)

    You can read some of Carmack's plan files (blogs before blog was coined) for some insight into this, but basically he does it because he learned to code by reading other people's code, and so wants to help the next generation of programmers get started too
