I found it interesting and thought I'd post about it in case other people like that sort of thing, too.
I think I've met Skud only once, at YAPC::Europe in Amsterdam several years ago, during which time we talked only briefly. I'd been aware of her for quite a while earlier, though I don't remember how I first became aware of her. Presumably some Perl connection, though.
 I was googling for the phrase "Elke Tanzer" site:livejournal.com for no good reason other than that the name popped into my head. I have no idea why it did that.
