The Fly Gabe Newell Fund Has Been Successful!

We raised over $3000 in not-even-three-days. Gabe and Erik flew down on their own dime and hung out with me. All funds raised were donated to the Child's Play charity. See below for my summary of the event.

Thanks, everyone!

$100 from Robin Walker of Valve Software

My last post, suggesting that perhaps Batman's trusty sidekick Robin had donated to our cause, was made in error - for there can now be no doubt that the real Robin has contributed. The incredible Robin Walker of Valve Software, that is! He attached the following message:

This is Robin Walker, from Valve. The rest of us at Valve would sure appreciate a couple of days without Erik around, so thanks for organising this!

Quick question though: if I donated more, would you buy a one-way ticket for him?


Thanks, Robin!


  1. Hahaha, Robin is clearly the secret CEO pulling all Gabe's strings.

    Also, my hero.

  2. This is BIG LOLZ Joe!
