📌 The Life and Thoughts of Zach - Insane Geek Auction

Last night’s LCA charity auction was the just fantastic on every level: “Only a room full of geeks would: Form a coalition to win an auction rather than just letting an individual win and then privately donating. Value a celebrity hacker having his precious beard shaved off more than physical ownership of a beautiful work of museum quality art. Engage in one-ups-manship of adding seemingly valueless pledges to the prize pool. Figure out how to collectively come up with well over $28,500 (factor in the Euros and it’s over $35,000) for a charity they’d just discovered in under an hour.” #
