Building Peace Corps Websites

More Peace Corps irony.

Twice this week I received requests from Peace Corps volunteers asking for help in building Peace Corps related websites (either for volunteers or the communities they are serving).

Though I’m flattered, it seems people are forgetting that I got kicked out of the Peace Corps for building websites (e.g. this very site you are reading right now).

But will I help? Most likely, I will. These sites will either assist a local community or provide greater support to Peace Corps volunteers.

After all, I joined the Peace Corps to help others with Information Technology. Sadly, I’m confined to help remotely from the comfort of my air-conditioned home instead of doing so in Guyana under the confines of a bug net.

I know that sounds like a backward thing to say, but that’s how the Peace Corps runs things in Guyana.
