I have mentioned before that Lisa (user handle KumaBear) is an enthusiastic participant in ActiveWorlds, a virtual-reality platform that has been around since the Dark Ages 1995, where she has been building the virtual town of Bleakwood. Last night, the ActiveWorlds user community presented the Cy Awards, which are voted upon by the users to honor achievement in different categories. I'm pleased to announce that Lisa's Bleakwood won the 2014 Cy Award for Virtual Art Design. (You may have to choose 2014 if you go to that page; I don't see any way to directly link to the specific year.) Lisa was not able to attend the awards ceremony (she didn't bring her AW-enabled computer on this trip), but sent an acceptance speech to a good friend to read on her behalf. Lisa is chuffed, as the British say, and I'm proud of her.
