Processor Auction For Child’s Play

One of many incredible memories from PAX East involved a processor giveaway. 

The guys from the Intel booth gave us a pretty motherfucking sick piece of hardware to give away, more or less at our discretion.  You might be aware of the button culture at the other PAX, where people create pins and trade them, and they are fun to collect.  It’s hot.  PAX East introduced the idea of collectible cards, and someone had put together a comprehensive set with the intention of giving it to us at a panel.  We were tremendously honored by that, and thought we’d trade him the processor straight across.

The moment I handed it to him - understand that we’re talking about a thousand dollar hunk of silicon, now - he gave it back.  He said we should auction it for Child’s Play instead.  Incredible. 

So that is exactly what we are doing.
