On Sunday, the 6th of February at 6 am PST/SLT, Jayjay Zifanwe will formally announce the launch of the "MachinUWA III: Journeys" at an event at the UWA site in Second Life. This will be the third challenge in the series by UWA, one of the more prominent arts establishments in the virtual world of Second Life. Jayjay had given me a heads up about the challenge and Sundays event, when he'd dropped a preliminary version of the notecard announcement. He also said in IM, "That's our almost finalized NC for the new challenge, the only things changing will be peoples names on the judging panel or something like that".
Much to my surprise and delight, it was two days later, when he'd messaged me in world once again and asked, "Would you consider being one of the judges?"
I readily accepted and in reply said, "I'd be honored to do so."
