(well, just Damian's services at lunch tomorrow)
At the YAPC Auction last night, Damian Conway donated his time and attention for the duration of one lunch, promising to "talk non-stop". Through the combined efforts of particle, Util, chargrill, diotalevi, ChemBoy, zrusilla, and hobbs, along with non-monk John Melesky, our $675 bid won the auction. Our bid was for Damian to attend the PerlMonksBOF lunch tomorrow; we hope all the monks at YAPC will attend.
If we had not bid, he might have come anyway; TheDamian es muy macho monk, and might have super-positioned himself. This way, though, we will have his undivided (fully collapsed quantum wave) presence.
