The Steam group “A Call for Communication”, which currently boasts 29,617 members (http://steamcommunity.com/groups/messagetovalve), will be playing Half-Life 2 simultaneously on Saturday, February 4, from 11:00am until 11:30am PST in order to try and get Valve to announce anything pertaining to Half-Life Episode 3 or Half-Life 3 – if either exists."

Half-Life 2 50% off on 4th Feb.
Probably.

What, no DDOS attacks or website defacing? This is a refreshingly mature idea.

Don't worry, I'm sure someone will miss the point and spam Gaben with abusive emails.

Why would they? This isn't 4chan/Anonymous/LulzSec/whatever. It's just a group of fans who want the series to continue. They don't achieve anything by launching malicious attacks.

Then again, the HL2 leak did prove how far behind Valve were...

Well, it's pretty much guaranteed to have no effect, but it... sounds fun, I suppose? I lose nothing by committing to joining. Half an hour on a Saturday afternoon.

If I was European, mind, there might be quite a lot else I could be doing on a Saturday night. And I don't want to know what time that makes it in Australia. Eh, it's probably pretty hard to find a single time that would world world-wide for most people. And iirc America's the biggest chunk of Steam users.

Group joined. I may have been the 32,800th member.

PST is UTC-8, east coast of Australia is +10... so we'd be +18 from PST.
So um... 0300 on the 4th?

Not sure about you, but I'm not going to stay up/wake up for that.

EDIT: Unless you're in Perth of course, in which case I feel sorry for you!
