Message 1: Programmer Jon Ruland on the LINGUIST Team
Date: 04-Apr-2007
From: linguist <linguistlinguistlist.org>
Subject: Programmer Jon Ruland on the LINGUIST Team

Dear Subscribers, 

I joined The LINGUIST List team just this past October of 2006 as a student
assistant at Eastern Michigan University. Though I am in the computer science
program and have no background in linguistics, I am impressed with the enthusiasm
of my linguistics co-workers who believe very strongly in what they do not only
from a business perspective--indeed, who would study linguistics with dreams of
wealth?--but from a personal fervor for linguistic studies and fieldwork.

Here at LINGUIST, my fellow computer science specialists (i.e. geeks) and I tend
to do the "gritty" programming work--the kind of work beyond simple HTML or
JavaScript that requires a background in programming to do. We also assist our
coworkers with a linguistics background whenever they have a tough computer
science-oriented question. Similarly, they assist us when we have a conceptual
question about the work we are doing, asking for example, "What exactly are we
trying to do with this page?" The linguists here always give us the most
friendly and helpful answers. Indeed, the better part of what makes LINGUIST a
great working environment for me is the people working with me.

This fall will be my last semester as an undergrad at Eastern Michigan University,
and though I do intend to go to grad school one day, I will almost certainly be
leaving LINGUIST for a full time job at some point this summer. Still, I will
always remember my brief time here and the terrific people I work with. But
without your kind contributions, the work done by these terrific people will
not be possible. If you can, please donate to keep LINGUIST alive and well.

Jon Ruland
LINGUIST Programmer

This Year the LINGUIST List hopes to raise $55,000. This money will go to help keep the 
List running by supporting all of our Student Editors for the coming year.

See below for donation instructions, and don't forget to check out our Fund Drive 2007 
LINGUIST List Superhero Adventure for some Fund Drive fun!


There are many ways to donate to LINGUIST!

You can donate right now using our secure credit card form.

Alternatively you can also pledge right now and pay later.

For all information on donating and pledging, including information on how to donate by 
check, money order, or wire transfer, please visit:


The LINGUIST List is under the umbrella of Eastern Michigan University and as such can 
receive donations through the EMU Foundation, which is a registered 501(c) Non Profit 
organization. Our Federal Tax number is 38-6005986. These donations can be offset against 
your federal and sometimes your state tax return (U.S. tax payers only). For more 
information visit the IRS Web-Site, or contact your financial advisor.

Many companies also offer a gift matching program, such that they will match any gift 
you make to a non-profit organization. Normally this entails your contacting your human 
resources department and sending us a form that the EMU Foundation fills in and returns 
to your employer. This is generally a simple administrative procedure that doubles the 
value of your gift to LINGUIST, without costing you an extra penny. Please take a moment 
to check if your company operates such a program.

Thank you very much for your support of LINGUIST!
