Subject: Help Us Train Linguistics Students

Dear Subscribers,

My name is Benjamin Cool and I have been working for The 
LINGUIST List for three years. I am a computer programmer 
with interests in Artificial Intelligence and web user 
interfaces pursuing my Masters in Computer Science at Eastern 
Michigan University. Because I am not a linguist, working on 
the projects undertaken by The LINGUIST List has helped me better 
understand what tools and standards are important to linguists. 
I have grown quite fond of programming for the linguistic 
community and am contemplating pursuing academic work in 
linguistics after my program in Computer Science comes to 
a close this year. 
In addition to working on projects like LL-Map and MultiTree, 
I maintain the LINGUIST Jobs entry forms, the search facilities, 
and fix bugs found on our site. I am also involved in training 
the graduate assistants and student workers in web programming 
techniques and standards. The training the linguistics students 
receive from me and other LINGUIST programmers better prepares 
them for their work in linguistics while allowing them to keep 
the web services running for subscribers like you. Please donate 
to help keep these services available:

Thank you for your support!
