To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: interns Paul, PDI is considering hiring an intern this summer for our tools development group, either a grad student or undergraduate. Do you know anybody who might be interested in doing something like that? Hopefully it would be somebody who was young and overly enthusastic and who found themselves wasting just a little too much time on the UI part of their graphics projects. I think it would also be fair to say that we are more interested in someone who is actively interested in doing graphics tools development, as opposed to graphics research. Ideally they would check out my home page at http://www.traipse.com and blow a lot of time obsessively reading the whole thing. That would be a pretty good litmus test. Any help you could give us in tracking down somebody like this would be appreciated! Drew
