How & Where did you discover Minecraft?

I am curious to know how you found out about MineCraft. So how did you find it? A site, a friend, email, you tripped over it..

I for one, found it through a news article say 3 weeks or more ago, via a computer enthusiast website
It was a free weekend deal as the creator was having an issue with his server and stuff. I bought it within an hour of that ending :D . Have played everyday since.
What about you?

Been playing since last fall... September-ish? I just remember seeing a classmate playing it next to me in class, and went... :?

Then, after trying it, I was hooked. Ran a creative server for a while, but then school took priority and I had to concentrate to get that last term finished up. This one'll be permanent. ;)

My extremely nerdy friend "fat-dan" posted a yt video of his house in minecraft. My first impression "WHO THE HELL WOULD PLAY THAT ****?! Fat dan of course..." but then I saw a related video called "Earth" and then saw an article on Kotaku and thought I'd try out alpha. It was interesting, like legos, but the griefers were annoying, yet they added a nice element of fear to the game that made it exciting to hide your base. I'd really like minecraft if it became more sim-like. You know, expanded on the farming, house appliances, quests. That'd be neat.

I read an article about MineCraft in the latest edition of Game Informer. That sparked my interest, so I looked it up on YouTube to see what it was all about. The videos closed the deal.

reddit. There's a whole community on reddit dedicated to minecraft. I saw the basic minecraft video with the minecart, and it didn't look interesting at all. Then, I starting seeing more and more content which pulled me in.

Well, it started when a friend of mine downloaded a pirated version (so to speak) of minecraft. A very early version I recall. The game didn't give me any good first impression, but I figured I'd watch him play it a little more. Then I too downloaded the pirated version, and got addicted immediately.

Anyways, it all ended up with 7 of 11 in the class buying the game, while two more are playing the free browser version.. I also fear one of them quit school to play minecraft.. Or something.. Haven't seen him in weeks. >:
