LibraryThing.com, the innovative, Portland, Maine-based social networking site for book lovers wants an intern.

We can think of four possible "types" for whom we could create a nifty internship. We're only looking to get one intern, though.

* "Weird Library Science" (MLS students)
* "Web 2.0 Programming" (computer students)
* "Web 2.0 Marketing" (anyone)
* "Web 2.0 Design" (design students)

We offer:

*Minimum wage, probably
*Full- or part-time
*Cool, anarchic work environment (4 people in Portland, 6 elsewhere)

We'd love to get someone in who could help us, but the focus will be on learning from us, and doing interesting, open-ended and intellectually stimulating projects. We'd rather get someone local, but if you really want to do something remote, and have a strong idea what you could do with us, we'd love to hear from you.

Do the duties include assembling your emails into book form on a daily basis?

You want an intern, Mr Clinton Spalding?

Yeah. Maybe we should get a distance intern.

I can't decide if you're being silly, sick or downright sinister.

Jun 12, 2009, 1:03pm Top

I have to choose?

Did you just come out as a bisexual?

Jun 12, 2009, 1:30pm Top

No, interdisciplinary.

BDSM is wrong, wrong, wrong, Spalding.

Thank you for the correction, Ma'am. Please may I have another?

Jun 12, 2009, 1:39pm Top

11: No.

Jun 12, 2009, 1:56pm Top

I hate it when that happens.

Did you just come out as a bisexual?

No, interdisciplinary.

I prefer to think of it as random sampling.
