“The price one pays for pursuing any profession or calling is an
intimate knowledge of its ugly side.”

– James Baldwin

If you like the JOTW quote at the beginning of each newsletter, be
advised there is usually one at the end, too.

Welcome to the free Job of the Week e-mail networking newsletter for
professional communicators.  JOTW is a cooperative service that relies
on the contributions of its members, like you.  We share job
opportunities, news and information about the job market, as well as
swapping stories about life's peculiarities.

First of all, it doesn't cost you a cent.  How does it work? If you find
out about a job opportunity in communications, send it to me
(lundquist989@cs.com), and I'll share it with the JOTW network.  It's
that simple.  And we share dozens of opportunities each week.  Did I
mention it was free?  Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail
to
JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.  It's free for them, too.

I never give out, rent, or sell my list, and neither does Topica.

“Don't be too timid and squeamish about your actions. All life is an
experiment. The more experiments you make the better.”

-Ralph Waldo Emerson

***  I have been warning you about the pending debut of the new JOTW
website.  I'm very pleased to report that we will be launching it in
January, and that we will be doing a number of things to take JOTW, the
Newsletter and the Network itself to a new level.
 
We have been considering a number of ways to generate revenue, and also
to demonstrate the value of our sponsorships to potential advertisers. 
For now, rather than introducing a two-tier membership structure with
free and paid content, we are going to be focusing on identifying
sponsors, and figuring out what we should charge for a basic one-month
exclusive sponsorship package that would include:
 
* Banner advertising on the Web site
* Numerous mentions in each weekly edition
* A link in a “teaser” e-mail directing members to the site
 
We've given a lot of thought to how we'd sell these sponsorships.  I've
identified a surprise sponsor for January, and we will be working with
them to learn how our members respond to their advertising–data that
will help us tremendously in the future.  But for February, we're going
to try something completely different.
 
eBay!
 
We'll have no reserve price, so anyone who wants to sponsor the entire
month of February on JOTW can place your bids starting soon.  The link
will be shared when it is available.

If you have any questions, please e-mail me at lundquist989@cs.com
 
This is a bold move for us, the first of many to come.  Thanks for your
support, and I look forward to introducing you to some great sponsors.
 
 For those considering an outreach effort, consider this target market:

–   Only 7% of participants consider themselves unemployed. 
–   At the same time, 60% of readers are “looking” for new opportunities.
–    7.5% have incomes above $150,000; 26% above $100,000, and
approximately 40% above $85,000. 

So, the new JOTW website goes “live” on New Year's Day.  The more
resourceful among you could probably find it right now if you looked for
it.

***  From Kris Gallagher:

Ned –

Second Life is a Web site — perhaps Web 2.0 community is a better term
— in which participants create an avatar, earn money, build homes and
communities, make friends, and have a, well, second life. It's hugely
popular with the teen set and is gathering growing interest from
advertisers who create virtual retailers (clothing designers, etc.)
inside the community. Participants can create an avatar that reflects
their corporeal selves or is wholly different (gender, race,
personality). I believe participants pay a fee to participate in Second
Life. There is a similar community called There.com which is free to
participants. This is a worldwide phenomenon — many players from other
nations, particularly in Asia, participate to work on their English
and/or to create communities that speak only Mandarin.

I have not played Second Life (I have enough trouble keeping up with my
actual life), but since I do so much writing directed toward teens, I
try to remain aware of such things.

***  Frappr and Second Life:

Frappr is a website, based on Google Maps, which lets users of online
communities (e.g., message boards) virtually “pin” themselves on a map
and see other members' locations. http://www.frappr.com/
Second Life (SL) is a 3-D virtual world which resides in a grid of
servers that use open source technology. Residents, represented by
avatars, interact in the SL world and participate in its economy. SL
also has begun to operate as a real market, i.e., real life businesses
and organizations now operate in Second Life.
http://secondlife.com/
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Frappr
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Second_life

(To say that 2L is a “virtual world which resides in a grid of servers”
is like saying Chartreuse is “a green liquid stored in bottles.”  What
is the essence?)

Sorry. That wasn't the question you asked.
 
There's absolutely nothing special about Frappr. You just denote your
location on a map, others do too, and you can look at it on a
collaborative web page.
 
Second Life is more complex, a sort of massive multiplayer online
role-playing game that currently is being “played” by some 2 million
people worldwide. It's an “imaginary” digital world where you create a
persona, meet people, attend events, play games, enter contests and buy
real estate — for real money. You can open a business, create things,
buy and sell things (for real money), build things, etc.
 
Naturally this takes a lot of computer power and space, hence the server
grid. And because real e-commerce takes place, some businesses are
establishing a stakehold.
 
I don't have a Second Life presence — I barely have time for one life.
So I can't tell you what makes it awesome — if it is awesome. It
probably appeals to gamers — people who enjoy playing MMORPGs such as
WoW.
 
***  Ned's is asking:

Will you use all of your vacation time this year, or will you “lose”
time off?  Why?  I want to get a sense of how many people will walk away
from “time off” they've earned.

Ned wants to know.

***  From Curt Reilly:

ALCON:
 
A long time friend, shipmate and mentor (RADM Joe Callo) is the author
of a great book John Paul Jones: America's First Sea Warrior which is
now in its second printing.  It's a great story, one that deals with an
exceptional man who had more to do with winning our liberty than most
realize.  I recently finished reading it and strongly recommend you all
consider either buying it for yourself or as a Christmas gift.  It is
available on Amazon.Com.  You can also learn more about this very
talented and experienced author at www.JosephCallo.com  really!
 
I am sharing this with you for I know you enjoy Naval history or history
in general.
 
Thanks
 
Curt

(Ned notes:  I reviewed this book for Maritime Reporter.  You can read
the review at http://www.nedsjotw.com/blog/DefenseJobs/ReadWriteReturningBookReviews

There is a link to order the book, too.  I call my book review webpage
“Read, Write, Returning,” but I don't think anyone would figure that
out.  Ned also notes that Curt was Joe Callo's aide, and I got to know
them when I was PAO for COMSUBGRU TWO at New London.  I later met Joe's
daughter when I made a brief visit to Hanoi where she was a Reuters
reporter.  My understanding was on that visit that I was the second
naval officer to leave Hanoi on his own two feet.)

***  From Ken Jensen in Arizona:

“Read, Write, Returning” ?? Excuse the paraphrase, you can take the
sailor our of the Navy, but you'll never take the Navy out of the sailor
… or something like that.

***  Caption Contest:

I saw a website that has a caption contest to provide alternative
captions to New Yorker cartoons.  I'm thinking of doing something
similar for “Ned's JOTW” website when it launches on 1 January.  Are
there any cleverly artistic communicators who could provide a cartoon
sans caption for each month, and we can all offer our own witty caption.
 We can then vote, and have a prize for the winner?  This is the
prototype website that has something like I'm considering. I had to
laugh at a few of these captions.  Maybe, just maybe you will, too. 
Maybe.  Perhaps.

***  Bondisms:

Ned…I was just the conduit for the “Bondisms!”  Please note that they
actually came from Ian, a Jesuit high school student in Fairfield
County, age 15!   And, I got them from his grandfather, John.
 
Ned — Please note John's phobia about computer weirdness with kids and
just credit Ian as I've noted above. 
 
John — This cool?
 
Ian — Your “Bondisms” are brilliant!  I've sent them around the globe
and now Ned has shared them with over 10,000+ subscribers to his
newsletter!    I'm sure you've given many people a chuckle or more today
and for a few days to come.

***  JOTW network member Trane McCloud:

As commanding officer of the Naval Media Center between 1996 and 2000
(and throughout my 24-year Naval career) I was fortunate to serve with
superb Marines.  One of them was Captain Trane McCloud.  I was impressed
with his professionalism, military bearing and work ethic.  These are
qualities you expect from a Marine.  But Trane had a sense of curiosity,
and a thirst for knowledge, and as the news director for Navy Marine
Corps News, he joined the Radio and Television News Directors
Association to learn more about his “trade,” and how to do it better. 
He led a great team of Sailors and Marines in providing the right news
that our audience needed and wanted, and did so in such a way that our
audience was compelled to watch.

What struck me about him was his constant smile, and the way he made
everything seem easy.  It wasn't, we both knew that, but he never let
on.  More than anything, I was impressed by his high sense of honor and
integrity.  I would hold weekly “All Officers Meetings” to discuss what
the command was doing, and to discuss issues that were big and important
and deserved pondering.  The Naval Media Center was involved in a lot of
things, and the officers might otherwise not know what their shipmates
were doing, or otherwise interact with one another unless we came
together for this “professional development” opportunity.  Trane was an
active participant, and taught us all a thing or two.

If I was about to “stray off course,” Trane had the self-assurance to
speak to me privately, and share his concerns.  He was always right, and
I always benefited from his advice.

Trane was mission oriented, to be sure, but most of all he cared about
his people.  He understood that if you take care of your Sailors and
Marines, they will take care of you, and get the job done.  As a result
the weekly television show won numerous awards.

We would bring the show to the Pentagon each week so that our boss, the
Chief of Information, could review and approve the show before we
transmitted the broadcast to ships at sea and bases overseas.  I would
take the escalator, and Trane would take the stairs.  We would meet up
again, and he would just smile.  He was a Marine.  Marines don't need
escalators.

He was a Marine.  He was a father and a husband.  He was shipmate and a
friend. 

Maj. Trane McCloud was killed when the CH-46 helicopter he was flying in
crashed in Iraq.

70802-4607.  EOE.

(Volunteer opportunity!)

Actually, the name of the organization is Volunteer! Baton Rouge. It's a
charitable organization, but it has a paid staff. This is a paid staff
position — CEO, as a matter of fact.

VBR is a very reputable and well thought-of group, too — not anything
struggling along or fly-by-night.

Thanks!
