Wanted Immediately:  law student or college student to assist with several upgrades to the site and restoration to its original format.  Student should have blogging experience, ("plawdcasting" experience and/or abilities as well even better), rudimentary knowlege of HTML code (or ability/willingness to learn a couple of quick basics) and strong web-based research skills.  Individual should be patient, a fairly quick study and enthusiastic about web logs.  Responsibilities will include (a) transferring posts from current MyShingle site to the former slash based site; (b) researching and updating various MyShingle offerings and (c) assisting with development of future ideas for site offerings.   Must have own computer (preferably laptop) and high speed interconnection.  Location in DC metro area preferred but not required as work can be performed remotely.  Tasks estimated initially at 40-50 hours, would prefer that student be able to at least one task before exams.  Compensation commensurate with legal temp positions (but work is far more exciting and flexible!)

    Hi. I used slashcode (slashcode.org) for a project, but I’m not a big fan of web-based Perl programs because configuration is tricky. I think you’ll find PHPslash (php-slash.org) or scoop (http://scoop.kuro5hin.org/) a bit easier to use since they are PHP based instead of Perl.
    However, if you want to demo the latest opensource software including the latest blogs, content management systems, portals, etc., go here:
    http://www.opensourcecms.com/
    You can login and play around with all of the software instantly (the software reinstalls itself every 15 minutes so any changes you make will be lost). I test things out there all the time.
    If you need help or suggestions, email me.
