But: things I've heard (and no, sorry, if you say you learned it here, I will deny, deny, deny):
- Semi-underground website for editorial job-searching here. It's very hush-hush; they'll tell you if you can or can't mention the site when you apply. See the WhisperJobs section.
- It should be noted that not all jobs are as peachy as mine. I have 1) the best boss in the world, and 2) have paid my dues, so to speak. I could write a whole post on "stupid reasons I've been yelled at," but instead, I will simply state that one office was like that in Mad Men (minus the great clothes), one only recently decided its assistants were allowed to speak at meetings, and another very nearly patted me on the head when I had an idea. So. Don't go packing your suitcase with visions of sugarplum-coated manuscripts. Go in with a clear head and get a good sense of who you'd be working with.
- Apple's version of the e-reader will be announced this January. Ish. At first I heard (from a friend whose dad is a big Comp-Sci guy in CA) that because it's called Tablet, we'd be able to (eeep!) annotate our reading. Now I see it's just, well...a really big iPhone. E-ink? Doesn't look like it. In other interesting semi-news, Steve Jobs thinks people don't read anymore. Which is pretty silly, given that much of the internet is, duh, text. And I don't see the internet going out of style anytime soon.
