I just got this message from Arnie Rowland and it looks like a great offer. Basically, if you’re unemployed or underemployed he’ll provide the software if you’ll provide the talent to create an application for … well, I’ll let him give you the details.
Letter from Arnie Rowland: _______________________________________________________________________
I am leading an effort to provide software, training, books, and software tools to unemployed (or significantly underemployed) developers. The package of software, etc., has a value exceeding $17,000.
Of course, there is a catch. We ask the developer to take on a small software development project for a non-profit, school, or church.
I ask that you pass this information through your network of friends, collegues, and contacts in order to get the word out to eligible developers. Also, pass the word to any deserving non-profits, schools, and churches where you may contacts. An non-profit can submit a proposal and perhaps a developer will take it on. I would love to see more submissions from Oregon and Washington.
The idea is to provide the tools, motivation, and opportunity for the developer to improve his/her skills in order to improve marketability. And at the same time, do good for society.

Thanks in advance for your help.
