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!

For the text that was previously here - detailing the sequence of events that led up to all this - go here and here.

I'm going to bed.

Further posts here will be delayed until the morning.

The current total stands at a truly staggering $947.59 USD, which is...truly staggering.

Pretty good for one day.

See you tomorrow!


  1. This whole thing is pretty crazy.
    Crazy things are cool. I hope you get monies like nobody has gotten monies before. And also show those bastards what happens when they boycott stuff!!111

    Er, yes.

  2. Sleep well and dream about your maps being played for hours by Valve employees.

  3. Have you figured out your magic number as to how much you need to raise to get them out there?

  4. Hey Joe,
    I'm Drew from Elysium Internet Cafe, Fortitude Valley, and we would like to help, how about a venue for your mod demonstration to Gabe and Erik?
    I'd like to speak with you. I've added you to msn so lets talk, when you wake up :P

  5. This would be fantastic. Would totally be interested in flying there if the venue was big enough.
