London tech geeks go nude

London tech geeks go nude

A London-based computer expert has produced a calendar with photos of computer geeks in nude, and is selling them for 10 pounds each to help a charity organisation in India.
The photos show the men and women posing with strategically-placed laptops or wrapped in computer cables.

Milo Yiannopoulos the brain behind the calendar said he wanted to change the view that internet entrepreneurs were “unattractive geeks”, as well as raise money for charity.

For India’s cause
Proceeds from the calendar will go to Take Heart India, a charity that funds IT and business training for disabled people in India.
“Someone suggested the idea as a joke, and I just thought why not. There is a perception that the people who run these internet startups are unattractive geeks, and I wanted to show that’s not the case. We are hoping to sell over 5,000, and are also working on an iPhone app,” Yiannopoulos told the Daily Telegraph.
He said it was about getting the entrepreneurs together to raise money for an entrepreneurial charity. 

“The charity doesn’t just dish out money in India - it educates and trains people to support their work skills. It was easy to persuade my friends to take part in the calendar as it’s raising money for such a good charity that promotes business skills,” Yiannopoulos told the paper.
The team creating the calendar held a launch party at London club Sway on Monday night. “I have no regrets - the pictures are great. It was loads of fun for a good cause and I hope we raise lots of money,” Hermione Way, 24, who posed for the calendar said.

“I really think that geeks are the rock stars of today, and hopefully this calender can help celebrate the geekiness of people. What could you want more for Christmas than a load of naked geeks on your wall?” she added.
