Nerds under hammer as sorority girls seek IT fix

Computer Weekly Staff

A computer club at Washington State University hopes to hold a "nerd auction" next week to meet the needs of IT experts with the needs of sorority girls.

"You can buy a nerd and he will fix your computer, help you with stats homework, or if you are really adventurous, take you to dinner," said Ben Ford, president of the Linux Users Group.

Exchanging IT skills for dates is certainly novel, but if you have any better ideas as to how to turn technological nous into the kind of relationship you cannot find in Second Life, then let us know.
