Just a reminder if you have possible project ideas for a three month intern
to either send them to me or add them directly to the wiki.

> Hi All,
> HOT and Mapzen are going to work together to support an intern in the
> Outreach Program for Women(1). This is through the generous financial
> support of Mapzen.
> Right now we are putting a wikipage together of possible projects(2). Then
> interested individuals will be able to make a proposal and apply to the
> program. It is a full-time internship with a stipend of $5500 taking place
> from the 9th of December until the 9th of March. Unlike Google Summer of
> Code which the program is based on the projects don't have to specifically
> be coding, though they certainly could be. Please if you are interested in
> helping mentor or have project ideas please add them to the wiki.
> Some background on the program from the OPM website: "The Outreach Program
> for Women (OPW) was inspired by Google's Summer of Code and by how few
> women applied for it. The GNOME Foundation first started the OPW with one
> round in 2006, and then resumed the effort in 2010 with rounds organized
> twice a year. In the May-August 2012 round, the Software Freedom
> Conservancy joined the OPW with one internship with the Twisted project. In
> the January-April 2013 round, many other free and open source organizations
> joined the program.
> This program is a welcoming link that connects talented and passionate
> newcomers with people working in free and open source software and guides
> them through their first contribution. Through OPW, participants learn how
> exciting and valuable work on software freedom can be, while helping us to
> build a more inclusive community."
