We're looking for some volunteers to help produce a quartly newsletter 
for Bioinformatics.Org.  Some of the topics that could be covered in the 
newsletter are as follows:

- Hosted project spotlights: a short review of a project hosted at 
Bioinformatics.Org (we have 105!)

- Articles about free/open source/access in bioinformatics, including 
projects outside of Bioinformatics.Org

- Articles about events in which Bioinformatics.Org is involved (e.g., 
the Annual Meeting)

- Notes about changes and developments in the Organization itself

- Reviews of books related to bioinformatics

- Listings of repository submissions (note that we are slowly developing 
a repository mechanism, which will include software, algorithms, data, 
publications/literature, and educational material--more on this later)

We will need several people to be involved.  Some of the work would 
require good English, writing, and desktop publishing skills, but other 
work wouldn't.  (It would be nice to produce the newsletter in LaTeX, 
but other programs can be used.)  You can even contribute cartoons if 
you'd like ;-)

If you're interested (and note that this is a *volunteer* position, like 
everything else at Bioinformatics.Org for now), please contact me off of 
the list <jeff at bioinformatics.org>.
