YC 122 New Eden Capsuleer's Writing Contest

Is there going to be a livestream from the ballroom?


Not per se, but people can attend holographically, if they can’t come in person.

I am afraid there has been a mixup with the timings we discussed. I went by your “I hear you have an event on 13th at 17:00” without checking my own announcement, and only now when I intended to post that people could use the Liberation Day as prep for this one realized that is actually not true.

Liberation Day celebrations is very clearly posted for 19 for the firewords, 20 at the pub.

I suppose I should have remembered or at least checked my own schedules, so it serves me right to miss some folks I’d have liked to share a drink with.

Special Judges Prizes and their statements:

Haria Haritimado: "My special reward goes to Dr. Umbre Fallenstar, for his work on gravity. Given the bad luck and ill fate of being expelled from his wormhole after years of data gathering, and his dedication to the hard number crunching and science, “I support his endeavour of researching deeper into the current emergent threats with 1 billion ISK and I am looking forward to dive deeper into mutual research over the months and years to come.”

Loai Qerl: “My chosen recipient is not here, alas, but I would like even in his absence to recognize Kyle Saltz. The passion and great effort which he poured into his entries was evident, and I wish I could say so to him now. I encourage everyone to read and appreciate his work. If any of you see him, please let him know Loai still has his prize.”

Francophobia: “I enjoyed reading all the entries, and the two stories that made the largest impression on me I think deserved special recognition. The woman who loved a ghost and Skipping stones will both recieve an additional prize. Thank you Elsebeth and Palis Airuta.”

Lightning Lamont - Awarded a prize to Elsebeth Rhiannon for the Woman Who Loved a Ghost.
