Gladstoning is the latest internet-inspired real-life activity that's sure to find a loyal geek following among the steampunk/flash mob crowd and be much twittered about if little practiced. It is inspired by the morally ambiguous extra-curricular work of the late British Prime Minister and is kinda like geohashing, except instead of trying to meet up at a random place on the map, you find a random wfm in the erotic services section of craigslist and set up a date with her. But then instead of having sex, you talk about technology and the internet and how craiglist and cell phones have changed our lives. Oh, you pay her for the half-hour or hour. And maybe get a handjob, if she's up for it.

A friend of mine turned me on to this. It's the nerd.

Actually, I find it all rather trivial myself. But my good friend Bunbury has promised to take me Gladstoning next weekend. So I should have a better idea then.

Are there any other rules I should know of?

Yes. After you're done Gladstoning, you have to zap yourself the rest of the night with a brass-handled tazer covered in yak-hair.
i've done this. for a while. nowadays i find the conversation more interesting than the fornication. but i always like a happy ending.
