The original beard auction was not, as you know, strictly for the beard itself. Instead it was an auction of its fate, a competition of ideas for how the beard should meet its end. Many colorful proposals were put forth, but one gained clear favor: Clip-on Padawan Braids.

The beard's fate is decided:  The excellent Clip-on Padawan Braids proposal has won the day!  This proposal requires the severing of the beard in multiple braids, and for those braids to be individually auctioned.  Some or all of this will happen at the UW iSchool's iBall on Friday!
