David Liben-Nowell (dlibenno, CMC 320) announces:
"I am beginning a new research project on patterns of friendship formation, and I am looking for some students (most likely two) to work with me on this project. The immediate short-term goal is to write a crawler for a large online social-networking site; after the data collection, we will work on analyzing particular patterns of friendships within the data. [Click above for more information about the project.] If you are interested, please get in touch with me as soon as possible. I expect you to commit to working on the project through at least Winter and Spring 2007, and preference will be given to students willing to commit to working on this project beyond this academic year (possibly including Summer 2007)."

Carleton's Faculty Affairs Committee (FAC) is investigating a streamlined way of running electronic elections for various committee assignments. In recent years, faculty elections have been managed via surveymonkey.com, which lacks the features required by FAC's new ideas. To make FAC's ideas work, we will need a kind of web-based voting tool that does not appear to be available on-line for a low enough price. If you are interested in helping to develop such a tool and you have completed CS127, please contact Jeff Ondich (firstname.lastname@example.org, CMC 327). Though no money is available for this project, you could receive credit for Independent Research (CS 292 or 392).
