Hi, all! I'm a post-graduate student from BUAA, China, a top university in CS and i major in NLP and machine learning. i write python and i'm learning Ruby now. I have the book "NLP with NLTK" and i really appreciate what you are doing and what CLTK/NLTK is doing! I noticed that there is some jobs about Chinese and CBETA Chinese corpus. I'm a native chinese speaker and my ancient chinese is really good. i won the first prize in "chinese read and write competition" which was mainly about ancient chinese when i was in high school.
I would really like to join in the exciting job about ancient language processing, especially chinese ancient language processing ! thank you all for your wonderful jobs again!
I think i am a good candidate for some job in your idea list. i write python, i'm a native speaker, i'm learning Ruby and i major in NLP and machine learning. besides, i also do some web frontend/backend work such as write some RESTful API using Flask and Django for my lab and write some web pages for my lab using javascript and jQuery.
