Hi, my name is Pete Hubbard. I'm the founder of LifeWork Planning Services (LWPS) - a platform to help people make their dreams their LifeWork. LWPS is a work in progress and - at this moment - a mess as far as the home page and subordinate pages are concerned. I'll clean them up over time. This post describes the purpose and value of LWPS. Registration is limited and restricted.
I need a contract PHP programmer for many short (2 - 6 hr) PHP programming jobs.
You will be working on a Open Source system called Elgg which is the engine that drives LWPS.
I am looking for a VERY specific person, who ...
Email has value, but becomes too cumbersome when we try to track and manage projects. LWPS posts and wikis provide a convenient way to discuss, design and specify what code is needed and then to track and manage the work. You will need to learn some of the basic features and functions of LWPS in order to create posts, comment on other posts, use "access restrictions", etc.
If this appeals to you so far, please do the following.
If this still appeals to you, send me an email where you
If I want you to work for me, I will respond to your email with
I will contact you through your LWPS "<your-name> Mailbox" post when you create it.
LWPS as of March 2006 is about 10% complete and serving 15 members. It should be 40% complete by March 2007 serving 150 members and 60% complete by March 2008 and serving 1000 members. Our goal is to serve 10,000 by 2010.
Ultimately (around 2010), the vision for LWPS is to provide an answer to the question “On a planet with over six (6) billion people, how do I quickly and easily find at least six (6) people who share my vision, passion, and/or interests (VPIs ) and who want to collaborate with me to transform them into joyful work that satisfies our souls?”
The only way this will happen is if everyone has a standardized machine readible profile that contains their VPIs and can be searched and matched by Google or a Google-like process. Standardization and interoperability are critical requirements. The Elgg development team is a champion of both.
