Hmm, tough to answer without more to go on.  I think if I were in your
shoes I'd ask myself where I'm most happy outside of programming.  A lot of
good entry level open source work involves combining programming with other

Are you an artist?  Have a talent for strong design and striking expression?

Are you an organizer or a communicator?  The sort of person who draws
diagrams and talks to yourself practicing better ways to explain cool ideas
in simple terms?

Are you a scrappy tinkerer?  Someone who knows how to get your hands dirty
in a productive way before you're an expert?  A wiz with unit testing and
profiling tools?

I do have an education-related project I'm working on where being a smart
but inexperienced programmer might be an advantage.  But it's a question of
whether it's a good fit for what you're looking for.  Email me if you may
be interested in that.
