OttoGraphs Episode 6: Interview with Niv Shah

In this episode of OttoGraphs, Tom and Trey interview Niv Shah, the creator of Ottoneu.

We discuss a wide variety of topics, including, but not limited to:

  • the brand new Ottoneu Community (You can find out more about the Ottoneu Community here.)
  • the first season of Ottoneu Football
  • the history and early development of the Ottoneu
  • Niv’s plans to expand Ottoneu
  • some of the changes and updates to Ottoneu over the past year

If you haven’t yet, be sure to check out Episode 5 of OttoGraphs as well, in which we’ve re-released an older interview with Niv from about a year ago. Joe and Trey covered some of the same topics that we’ve discussed in this episode, and it’s really fascinating to see how much Ottoneu has changed over the course of just one year.

Feel free to comment with any questions or suggestions you may have about this episode or future topics. We can be reached individually on Twitter:
