Electric Sheep Seeks Interns

update 12/6/2007: we have enough now, thanks for applying! seeks programmers and web developers for internships starting ASAP. A new version of the evolving distributed screen-saver is approaching, and the time is now to make a difference. Get paid to do open source, part time! After two weeks of 8 hours each at $20/hour and a warm-up project, we'll negotiate hours and rates for the main course. We are looking for people skilled with DHTML, Drupal/php, Mac OS X Objective-C programming, and Windows C++. Especially exciting are candidates ready to jump into Android, OLPC, Laszlo, pd, Miro, or GPGPU. Or you tell me what you always wished the sheep could do and we'll make it happen. Location: NYC and online. Please submit your resume in text or PDF by email to the address on the bottom of my homepage. Thanks! Posted by spot at October 31, 2007 03:52 PM

I have been using electricsheep for about a year now. I have no money to donate, but I wish to let you know how much pleasure and soothing comfort your creation has brought to me. Few things in this world bring joy to me anymore, and I find it somewhat surprising that something as simple as a screensaver has. Thank you for your creation from the bottom of my heart. And when there comes a time when I am able to donate to you, rest assured I will do so with pleasure. Posted by: Chad at November 2, 2007 09:10 PM
I think this is such and awesome program. I would love to get involved in the development; however, I lack the programming knowledge... I think the next best step would be to make it so that it reacts to music.. :) Posted by: Lee at November 5, 2007 12:44 PM
I love electric sheep, especially when I'm "doing my homework" and instead staring at it going "oooh pretty! *up arrow*". However, I think there should be an option within the screensaver to make it so that it doesn't show sheep that you've marked as "really dislike" or have down-arrowed more than once. Every once in a while I find that some of them are ugly :/ In the past I've had to figure out which sheep it was and go manually delete it, but it'd be nice if the screensaver did that for you. And I wish I had the web proficiency to apply for that internship :) Posted by: Liz at November 9, 2007 02:00 PM
