The Wonderful Newell of Oz

As noted a couple of weeks ago, Australian gamer Joe W-A raised $3,000.00 to fly Gabe Newell to Australia to check out his game modification. Apparently this is a serious bit of frivolity, as Valve has issued a press release announcing their boss will land in the land down under next week, and they will be blogging about the trip: "Newell and Joe will meet in Australia next week. Reports of the trip will be posted on's blog section by Valve employee Erik Johnson, who will be traveling with Newell down under." An update on the Fly Gabe Newell Blog indicates the well-to-do developer is paying his own way to Australia, and the funds raised are going to Child's Play: "Also, Gabe and Erik are paying their own way, which means all the money accumulated will be going to the Child's Play charity. It will be going there tomorrow, because today my internet is shaped and therefore too slow to load PayPal."
