Blog designer needed

Some friends and I have decided to start a blog devoted entirely to the Valerie Plame affair and related scandals. The idea is lots of aggregation of Plame-related material from both conventional media and blogs, plus a little original analysis and opinion. We need someone to help on the technical side: both designing the page and putting in filters for a newswire feed and various blog feeds.

Time is of the essence; we’d like to have the page up and running before the New Year (or the Rove indictment, whichever comes first). If you’re interested in doing some work over the next couple of weeks, please email me.
