There are some things that can only happen in the Internet: the complete staff of ZDNet Tech Update is for sale on eBay. The bid descriptions says:

Complete staff of ZDNet Tech Update, formerly a vital division of one of the top ten highest-trafficked sites on the Web, currently available to instantly implement professional Web site or print magazine. (…) Resumes available to highest bidder. Bidders should be prepared to make a total annual commitment for salary and benefits in the high six figures. Sellers will also consider contract work. Please e-mail any questions before bidding.

The current bid is at US$ 8.50, and interested buyers have three days to make their bids. First, it was a town. Now, people. What’s next? A planet?

Update: The Register reports that eBay pulled the auction because of its wording. The Register also speculates that it might have been a hoax.
