ADMINISTRIVIA: Help wanted — Intern / Facebook Researcher

[JR: Maybe I’ve been going about this the wrong way? Instead of looking for a successor, I should build a a group of volunteers, like McEneney, Mike (MC1953), who each do a fun part of the job. With very limited duties and time commitment, alums would be more likely to take on a small task. Then, with fifty or so volunteers, CICing wouldn’t seem like an enormous burden. Comments? ]

Here’s the first sub-task.
