1. When you're between freelance projects...

Check out Clair Ching's insightful guide to what to do in between freelance projects. =)

2. Broadband Mechanics is hiring

Categories: None -- Permalink
Broadband Mechanics is hiring. They're looking for blogging-related hacking - RSS/syndication, blogging APIs, XML-RPC, REST, and all that sort of stuff. You can work from anywhere in the world.

These people are cool. I met one of them--Phillip Pearson--at a programming competition when I was in high school. He has good karma. Wouldn't mind working with BBM, but I should concentrate on my thesis first. =)

And they support open standards. Yay Broadband Mechanics!

Don Marti, Clair and I have been talking about horrible advertising antics. Don told us it gets even worse. Check out Press Release: Sexy Viruses Personified, Steal the Show. Sheesh.

He has awesome tips for holding a good technical trade show. Check out Doc Searls' advice, too.
