I have two possible sources of civilians for you:

I can put you in touch with a number of graduates who have found employment
through the Internet, as well as blue chip companies who use the net as a
major recruitment channel, and university Careers Departments who are
posting candidate profiles on-line. There are big advantages to all
parties in terms of speeding up the process and cutting administrative
overheads. Plus there's some work being done to develop on-line
psychometric testing for recruitment.

There is also an on-line Car Sharing scheme, based at a major UK business
park, which people use to find car share partners who live near / en route
to them. The system matches individuals based on their location, ranking
them according to prefs (smoke in the car? listen to radio? etc). This has
been popular with many of the park's population, and has been held up as an
example by the Department of Transport and various transport/environment
lobby groups. I could put you in touch with people who are using this
scheme to find car share partners.

Good use and respectable reasons?? These are Omniscience projects, so let
me know if they sound like the kind of things you're interested in and I'll
give you more details.
