LUG To Hold Auction With Nerds
The University of Washington LUG (Linux User Group) was told that they needed more females among their ranks to attract them into the WSU’s computer science programs. The nerds came up with a plan to auction themselves off. They suggested that the delegated male students can fix the females’ computers, help with homework, or act as dinner partners.
LUG President Ben Ford says that he and a selected sorority sister will host the event, which he hopes will become a YouTube extravaganza.
