Taking a few minutes off work . . . sorry Lucy . . . this had to be done . . . I was spending a few minutes cruising around The Orwell Prize website, readying myself for a reply to Katriona Lewis on our unfortunate early cut from the Orwell Prize.
It was at then that I happened upon The Special Prize, awarded at the judges sole discretion!

Nice artickled my fancy running into you here, of all places!
As a past judge for The Orwell Prize, I thought you may want to see what I am sending them right now:
This is the header of the message to Katriona Lewis:
I just left the following message on your website, as well as our website, and also to Gaby Hinsliff. But why Gaby Hinsliff, you may ask? I just feel that climbing mountains is a sport? I don’t quite know yet . . .
Here is the body of the message:
Unfortunately, our blog, called ARG MetaPhoria, did not make the longlist “cut” yesterday. How would one go about being considered for The Special Prize?
Our website could be considered to be “apolitical artwork,” which runs somewhat counter to George Orwell’s dream, but the “work” we are doing is to change this dystopian “system” into a utopian peer-to-peer network. We call the current system “The Crying Game ARG.”
The “apolitical” side of our site is to loosely weave past, present and future events into the storyline, using the premise that government is an invalid force against us, and to wake people up to the little known power they have as a combined neural net.
The “art” is that we have created a free speech site where we use humour and a storyline to meander along to our goal . . . a story that has no ending.
The “work” in artwork is a new currency called MetaFlorin . . . created by, and for the 7 billion people on this planet.
I hope that you consider us for The Special Prize. I will also send this comment along as a reply to Katriona Lewis, Gaby Hinsliff, last year’s blog judge, as well as posting it on our website as part of the story.
Have a great day!

Less than 5 minutes and my comment was Winston Smithed at Gaby’s site.
