Couple Things

1) The Reading List Email is up and running and I’ve sent about 3-4 out. If you signed up and haven’t gotten any, send me an email and I’ll add you. People have been asking, so I’m planning to do a new one later this week. So far I’ve been recommending a lot of books I came across while researching for The 50th Law and stuff I’ve read while recently obsessed with classics and rare books.

2) I just ended a year and a half stint with a remote intern and am looking for a new one. My readership has turned over a few times since I took applications here last time and I am opening it up again. Before you send anything in read the following criteria I’m looking for: A young person with some tangible (emailable) internet experience. I’d prefer they be a fresh person I’ve haven’t dealt much with before (no offense to the regulars who I hear from all the time) and someone with some talent at thinking strategically and teaching themselves. Most importantly, you have to constantly be reachable – I am and you’ll need to be also. The fact that I really threw myself into stuff regardless of other commitments when I was 18 is maybe the only reason I was able to turn that little opportunity into this.

If this sounds like you, email me a couple bullet points about you – where you go to school; links to your delicious, FB, Twitter, site; where you live; authors you like; projects you’ve worked on. My last intern got to work with a whole bunch of important and famous people, paid on some contracting gigs, and had a chance to corner a really good market. Think of the position like an expanded research assistant job mixed with social media work and community organizing. It’ll cover all the projects I work on and please don’t ask what they are – you either get it at this point or you don’t.
