Auctioning body parts

[ #30854 ]

About two years ago, after the so-called "fishnet incident", I wrote in my journal:

(And I'm scared that body modification may be the winner in 2009.)

We are actually getting closer to this. This year, I auctioned the surface of my arms in the following terms:

At every Perl conference that I'll attend in 2007, I'll (temporarily) tattoo the name of your favorite module on my arms.

José (cog) actually bought the space of my two arms for only £30. It's damn cheap!!!

We have spent the day after the conference using the hotel bandwidth for hacking stuff (with root and ambs), and we've also discussed our options:

  • one very long module name going from one hand to the other (some of the tattoo being on my shoulders too)
  • two modules, one on each arm
  • the module name on one arm, and the source code on the other arm (possibly in a very tiny font)
  • ... he keeps getting new ideas as I type this! I'm starting to be scared.

You'll see what we agreed upon at the conferences I'll attend in 2007... The list currently includes YAPC::Europe and the French Perl workshop.
