I am a software developer working for a large non-profit missionary organization. We are looking into using Livejournal to handle prayer requests and communications for our 25,000 staff and 500,000 volunteers. I'm in charge of getting a test Livejournal server up and running, and diving into the code to make modifications. I've worked primarily with C++/C and Java before, but I've done some Perl too.
I think this could really work well for our organization, and hopefully we can be useful for you as well. I look forward to working with you all.
