OT: we need your chairs

on Nov 29, 2001 at 14:16 UTC ( #128316=perlmeditation: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I am spear heading a community offered course in Web and Internet Technology. The course is a 6 month effort to produce a web site. It will involve all aspects of Web and Internet development: design, graphics, programming (perl of course), editing and content development. The students are pre-teens, teens and young adults some of whom would not have the resources to participate in such an experience. The teachers are all established professionals both local and international who are volunteering their time. The equipment and bandwidth have already been donated and we are well underway.

Now for the subject of this blantant solicitation, we don't want your money, we don't want equipment no no no. We want a picture of your chair! The details can be found at

Finally, I gave this alot thought before posting. Many of the students come from troubled backgrounds have dove into this with new found ethusiasm. I now have a clase of 15 aspiring Perl programmers. So I hope my fellow monks will contribute you bottom supports in the spirit of fun, learning and growth.

    Hey, that looks like a fun project. What's the time limit on chair submissions? I'm ashamed to admit it, but I don't have a current photo of my chair.... (and I don't have a digital camera handy either) Is there enough time to develop a picture the old-fashioned way?

    Following blakem's question,

    What's the limit on chair submissions? The office digital camera might not be available, and the next time i can get my hands on one is a couple weeks away. If this idea seems as fun to others as myself you could easily have a few hundred submissions by then...


    update: i submitted my chair as well.

    I can't send you my chair, but I can say "Good Luck!" and "I'm proud one of us is giving back like that."

    We are the carpenters and bricklayers of the Information Age.

    Don't go borrowing trouble. For programmers, this means Worry only about what you need to implement.

    For those who can't bear the suspense any longer.... I finally got a picture of my chair. Has anyone else gotten a picture of theirs yet?
