“Economics is extremely useful as a form of employment for economists.”

– John Kenneth Galbraith

This week:

Two major milestones:

1. ) The 200th issue of the DEFCON 1 newsletter will be published on Wednesday. I would also announce the attainment of 800 subscribers, which would also be a new milestone, except I only have 799 subscribers so far. You can subscribe to DEFCON 1 by sending a blank email to DCO-subscribe@topica.com.

2.) As of this issue, the JOTW Newsletter has topped the “30,000 job opportunities published” mark.

Also…

3.) The September issue of “Your Very Next Step,” the travel/adventure/outdoors newsletter, was published on Saturday. Check it out at www.yourverynextstep.com. You can subscribe for free by sending a blank email to yourverynextstep-subscribe@topica.com.

*** Welcome to the JOTW network.

This is the often-talked-about, sometimes copied, but totally unique weekly, still publishing after all these years, award-winning JOTW networking newsletter for professional communicators…like you, dedicated to the positive unanticipated consequences of networking, or as we call it, “nedworking.”

This is a cooperative service, which means it requires everyone’s cooperation, and since you are part of everyone, yes, you, I’m looking at you, don’t look down at your shoes. Everybody has to share. 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. Your friends can sign up by sending a blank e-mail to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

You are among 11,293 subscribers in this community of communicators.

This network is all about connecting communicators and sharing opportunities. And speaking of sharing, since the JOTW newsletter was started, more than 25,000 job opportunities have been listed and shared with members of this network. 30,025 to be exact, as of today.

I can’t change your e-mail address for you. But you can. Send a blank e-mail from your old account to JOTW-unsubscribe@topica.com. Then send a blank e-mail from your new account to JOTW-subscribe@topica.com.

If you can read this newsletter, then you are on the JOTW list. If you did not receive your JOTW newsletter by email in your in box this morning, it is because you have a junk mail folder, spam filter, or capacity issues on your end.

*** From Bridget Serchak:

Ned,

As a Medillian who graduated one year after Andrew, I never had the privilege of knowing him, but from our alma mater's listserv, I've certainly heard much about him in the months since Haiti and have come to admire his life and work.

Given the broad reach of the JOTW, I thought I might tap into the generous spirit of its many members and followers to see if there might be anyone in the JOTW family who would be interested and able to provide the kind of support needed for this effort. This is not a solicitation for funds for the foundation (though anyone interested is, of course, most welcome to do so), but rather a request to handle some of the PR responsibilities on a volunteer basis, as noted below.

I know nothing more about the duties or requirements other than what is in the email below, but I would direct all interested folks to Tom Avril's address below for further information.

Thanks in advance for anything you can do to help spread the word on this request.

PR Help Needed for Medill Alum Foundation

As many of you have heard, Andrew Grene (MSJ ’92) was killed in the Haiti earthquake, while on duty as a senior U.N. official.

His family and friends have set up a foundation that is already working in Haiti to improve education and to make microfinance loans, two areas about which Andrew cared deeply. See www.andrewgrene.org for the full story, with photos. You can also make an online donation at the site, which would be most welcome.

The foundation is seeking someone who could handle some PR responsibilities on a volunteer basis. They are striving to spend as little as possible on overhead, to make sure as much money as possible reaches people in Haiti.

If interested, please contact Tom Avril (MSJ ’92) at tavril@phillynews.com

26.) Radio on TV, KIAH, New Tribune Company, Houston, Texas

The New Tribune Company needs a biting and earthy voice to narrate a modern Newsreel style presentation. Think modern day Walter Winchell.

More akin to documentary with attitude…and non elitist mass appeal intellect. This experiment in modern Television will happen in Houston and is unlike anything on any media.

Skillful writing and a sense of understanding the pulse of America is good.
