    I’m Dan Larkin from Illinois, US (UTC -5 for the duration of GSoC, good old DST!). I’m currently finishing up my second year studying computer science at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. It’s great to be back and working with WordPress for another summer. I’ll be implementing MPTT this time around with Ryan Boren as my mentor.

    Hi for all, I’m Diego Caro from Concepc… 

    Hi for all, I’m Diego Caro from Concepción, Chile (GMT -4).

    I study computer science in University of Concepción (http://www.udec.cl), and this year I present my thesis. I work in the laboratory of Artificial Intelligence at the same university, in some projects (pattern recognition, artificial vision, etc.).

    These months (your summer, my winter [I live in South America]) I will be in class (because in Chile the first middle of the academic year begins in March and end in June, and the second middle of year begins in August and ends in December), also I will be learning english.

    My mentor is Thorsten, and I work on MPTT for store a lot of categories and pages.

    For any contact, my blog is http://diego.bloog.cl and my email is diegocaro at gmail punto com (for msn and gtalk). My username in twitter is @diegocaro .

    I hope that it’s a good time for learning and contributing to the WP.

    Bye!!!

    Hi everyone! I’m Justin Shreve from Ohi… 

    Hi everyone! I’m Justin Shreve from Ohio, United States (Time zone: Eastern: UTC-5/-4).

    I’m still a senior in high school but will be graduating in a little over a month. I will be attending Kent State University (http://kent.edu) for computer science in the fall.

    My mentor is Andy. We will be working on on the search engine. Our project will allow users to swap out different search engines (mysql full text, sphinx, google, etc) to power the search on their blogs. In addition the search will also allow searching of other content types and flags such as searching in category A for a certain string.

    My freelance website is up at http://serenelabs.com and I plan on blogging here at my WordPress.com blog.

    With that said, I can’t wait to get started!

      Welcome, Justin! Will you be able to attend WordCamp Columbus on May 16? It would be great to meet you in person. Noel Jackson and Nick Momrik from Automattic will be there (and so will I).

      • justin 7:22 pm on April 21, 2009 Permalink

        I would love to but I’ll be out of town and in New York May 14-18th for a wedding. Is there any other dates close by coming up?

    • Jake Spurlock 9:03 pm on April 21, 2009 Permalink

      I love the premise for this project. Good luck on it.

    Hello guys, I am Rudolf Lai from Hong Kong (GMT+8). My mentor is Mark and we are going to work on allowing the user to group his photos using albums. I am still in high school, but next year I will be going to University. I work mainly as a freelance web developer and graphic designer.

      How about uploading a gravatar? 🙂

        I just did… I think the picture has not propagated through yet.

        • Jane Wells 5:04 pm on April 21, 2009 Permalink

          It just takes a little while to show up, don’t worry.

      Hey, I’m having problems getting on. It just gives me a 503 in Adium whenever I try to get on the server, any clue what I’m doing wrong?

      Make sure you aren’t trying to connect over SSL. Use port 5222.
