Nude nerds? It might not be the first combination that comes to mind, but that's the concept behind a calendar that's being released to raise money for charity.
Technology writer Milo Yiannopoulos got London's IT gurus, both men and women, to strip for Nude London Tech, a charity calendar that will feature 24 portraits of naked techies, from entrepreneurs and bloggers, to social media buffs and search engine experts.
The portraits show the braniacs-in-the-buff holding strategically place laptops, or wrapped in carefully arranged computer cables.
Proceeds from the sale of the calendar, which can be purchased here for about $15, will go to Take Heart India, a youth-oriented organization that focuses on IT projects for students in India. The Nude London Tech creators are hoping to sell at least 5,000 copies of the calendar.
Yiannopoulos told The Telegraph,
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.
