Working Mission Statement

There is an information problem between the various volunteers working on LiveJournal, both between each other ("has x already been taken care of?") and between them and Mr. Fitzpatrick, LiveJournal's creator, ("what should i work on?", "do you have the skills necessary to develop x?").

My project would involve assessing the information needs of the two main stakeholders--volunteers and Mr. Fitzpatrick--and developing an automated system that would enable them to communicate, and for Mr. Fitzpatrick to assign projects to various volunteers with no overlapping and no projects being unassigned.

I think this is a much more fitting project, because it draws from material I've learned in 310 (how people go about finding information), 320 (a method of presenting both the "volunteer list" and the "to-do list" in a rich, easily searchable manner), 380/381 (analyzing livejournal's business/organization and information flow systems), and hopefully 340 (making a database with volunteers and projects for them to do).
