I’m very excited to announce that I’ve been accepted to participate in the Google Summer of Code program. I will be writing memetracking software that will enable anyone to set up a Google News or Techmeme like site on any topic. Do you want to develop a news site following economic news? You can with my software. Do you want a site that tracks the latest Facebook Application development news? You can do that with my software. Read my full application for more about what the memetracker will do.
A big thanks to those who will be helping me write this software. First to Google who sponsors the Summer of Code program. Then to my mentors from the Drupal community (Bill Fitzgerald, Fabiano Sant’Ana, and Scott Hadfield). Then the BYU Professors who’ve volunteered to help me (Christophe Giraud-Carrier and Dan Ventura) and Ph.D student Matt Smith.
It’s going to be a great summer! I’ll be posting updates on this blog as summer rolls on.
