Hi Pumpers,

I work for Mozilla, spending a lot of time on the Open Badges project.
A few months ago, at the Detroit Maker Faire, badges were issued
through Badg.us, a side project of another Mozillian, Les Orchard.
Badg.us is a simple to use badge issuing platform that's getting a
fair amount of traction in the larger maker community. There's rumors
that the Maker Faire governing body might start using Badg.us more
formally, it's just a rumor, but seems like there's some real
potential there.

Badg.us has a list of things they'd like to accomplish on the
platform, but not enough developers to get it all done. If you're a
Python / Django developer, and want to spend some time hacking on a
project that could have a real impact in the Maker world, feel free to
contact me offline, so I can put you in touch with the folks in
charge.  If you'd rather just jump in, the code is up on Github,

Stuff they want to accomplish is tracked in Github issues.
