I was not 100% up to speed when I sent this note last week. It seems we
need to come up with funds for at least 1 intern ($5500). I think it is a
worthwhile expenditure from our general funds, especially in light of the
many $1000s we have gotten from Google for mentoring students. That said, I
will also do my best to raise at least some of the funds from external
sources. But I do need a thumbs up (or down) from the Oversight Board in
short order.
