Raising Funds To Fly Valve CEO Gabe Newell To Australia
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.
For the text that was previously here - detailing the sequence of events that led up to all this - go here and here.
The delightful Sam Jolly has sent twenty dollars. Sam Jolly is actually a personal acquaintance of mine, and is what we call, here in Australia, a "top bloke". He's English, so he'd think that's quaint. Maybe it is! Thanks, Jolly.
When Joe “Lacabra” Wintergreen-Arthur was eight years old, he managed to build a 100% accurate 3D representation of the interior of the CIA building at Langley - even the top-secret parts where photography is prohibited - in Worldcraft. He was investigated for years and unmarked cars still follow him everywhere he goes. Seventeen of his last twenty-five girlfriends turned out to be agents. More recently, he's made a Half-Life 2 mod, a Left 4 Dead campaign, flown Gabe Newell to Australia, and is workin' on a couple of games in UDK that you should totally check out.
