We are also participating in the Google 2006 "Summer of Code" program which awards students a stipend for mentored work on open source projects. (Monday May 8th is the deadline to apply for this program.)
The Archive is an amazing and unique place to work: a non-profit internet library, building a series of one-of-a-kind digital collections, often in partnership with much older and larger institutions like university and national libraries. Yet we have much of the mindset of a technology startup. Let me know if I can answer any questions about these opportunities.
