SINGAPORE, June 6, 2011 -

- Academy Has Received Over 15,000 Enquiries and Applications from over
50 Countries

- United States is Underrepresented - "I Know Young Americans Care About
Privacy, Ownership and Control, so Where Are They?" says Academy Sponsor

The Digital Life Academy today announced that it is extending the
application deadline for the 2011 session from Sunday 5 June to Friday 10
June. Due to a surge in applications as the deadline approaches, the Academy
has decided to extend the deadline to allow those who have recently been made
aware of it to apply.

The Digital Life Academy is a global think tank of people ages 16-25 who
are interested in the areas of online privacy, data and content ownership,
content monetization and similar topics. The Academy is comprised of 30
individuals from 20 countries, who meet for a 6-week period annually. Academy
selection is based on the individuals demonstrating entrepreneurial drive,
business acumen, and a dedication to addressing the concept of digital life

"The interest in this first edition of the Academy has been beyond our
expectations," said Johan Stael von Holstein, CEO of MyCube, an Academy
sponsor. "It is clear that young people across the world are passionate about
online privacy, and ownership and control of their digital assets and lives.
The only disappointment to date is that although we have had a few
outstanding applicants from the United States, the total number of
applications from the U.S. is disproportionately low. I know young Americans
are avid social network users and genuinely care about privacy, ownership and
control and I encourage them to take advantage of this opportunity to help
change the way we live our lives online."

The Academy will run from 4 July to 12 August 2011 at MyCube's
headquarters in Singapore. Academy members receive free flights, free housing
and a $3,000 Singapore dollar stipend.

Academy members will develop position papers, editorials, articles and
business ideas related to the core Academy concepts of online privacy,
ownership and control. After the program session, members will continue to
serve as spokespeople for the Academy and will help to select and mentor
future members. For more information on the Academy, please see
