Leon Brocard (aka acme) is an orange-loving Perl eurohacker with many varied contributions to the Perl community, including the GraphViz module on the CPAN. YAPC::Europe was all his fault. He is still looking for a Perl Monger group he can start which begins with the letter 'D'.

Auctioned off

[ #12912 ]
Something very odd has happened. There was a book auction today at YAPC::NA. This is where the YAPC crew try and raise some money by auctioning off books and other items kindly given by sponsors.

For some reason, I was also part of the auction. Piers made me get up on stage, do a little catwalk thing and then started to auction me off. All the ladies in the audience clearly started throwing money at me at this point. Oh, no, wait, that was a dream. What really happened was that a couple of people bid on me and I was finally sold for $160 to Elaine and Jos.

I hope they are kind to me!
