25 July, 2007
For those of you interested on taking a look (or should it be a "hear"?) on the podcast I had with my friend Leslie Hawthorn [https://bengoodger.com/hawthornlandings/index.html], here goes the link [http://googlesummerofcode.blogspot.com/2007/05/umit-project.html].

The Awaited Result
12 April, 2007
Finally I could release the list of selected students for this Summer of Code. Unfortunately, I couldn't select everyone I wanted, and I had to let go many talented students. I hope that the selected students have conscience of this matter, and work hard to show the world that they really deserved that slot in the Summer of Code, returning really good and useful stuff to the community. I really believe they're going to rock this Summer, and that's why I chose them. BTW, the list of accepted st
