- Are you a Ranger but not yet on Rangers Index?
How about sending us your answers to the following standard questions and a photograph of yourself in a non-IT environment:
– Who you are?
– What makes you “tick”?
– Where do you live?
– Where is the place you call home?
– Why are you active in the Rangers program?
– What is the best Rangers project you worked in and why
We would like to get as many Rangers in the index as possible, to ensure that we can present the person behind the name and walls in the virtual, disconnected and digital world we live in.
