Mike Whitfield (dukebag) – Introduction

Greetings to all,

My name is Mike Whitfield and this is my first time in GSoC. I live outside Washington D.C. and am working toward a BS in Computer Science with a focus/minor in Business Management. That said, I am GMT-5, EST.

I am working on a setup meter similar to what LinkedIn has (“your WordPress is 50% setup”). Also discussed were achievements similar to FourSquare or what many of us are used to with game consoles. Given my current progress, it sounds like there may be time enough to work on a variety of smallish things. WordPress is evidently awesome, and I am happy to have a solid opportunity to contribute to it.
