    Are you student looking for a team for a class project? Or an entrepreneur who needs to find a computer programmer? Perhaps you are an animator looking for a new project to work on, or you are starting a non-profit and need a team. In an effort to serve the team-building needs of students, faculty, and staff, the University of Southern California has launched MatchYard, a first-of-its-kind web-based Facebook application that allows students, faculty and staff to connect with other interesting people, ideas, and projects.

    As part of the launch of MatchYard, the highest rated project on the site will win $1000 and an all-expense paid, in-person meeting with legendary venture capitalist (and USC trustee) Mark Stevens at Sequoia Capital. The contest will run through November 14, 2008 and winners will be announced the week of November 17, 2008.

    Project:Possbility Takes First Place at 2008 Student Innovator Showcase!

    What do an open-source collective focused on designing free software for disabled persons, a videogame that can help you learn Korean, and do-it-yourself computer generated imagery all have in common? For one thing, they have the potential to dramatically change the way we live, work, and play. And for another, they are just some of the cutting-edge ideas USC students presented during the 2008 USC Student Innovator Showcase and Competition on Friday, Oct. 10 during Trojan Parents Weekend 2008.

    This year’s first place team, Project:Possibility, presented for the first time during last year’s showcase. Project:Possibility makes a positive impact on the lives of many by creating free software for the disabled community. Stanley Lam, Undergraduate, USC Marshall School of Business and Prateek Tandon, USC Viterbi School of Engineering, accepted the award for Project:Possibility’s unique model to creating a more accessible world. Since last year, Project:Possibility has become more than a project, it is a movement — reaching it mission and vision across town to UCLA and other universities across the country.
