*** Tenth anniversary observations:

*** Ten years down the hatch:

Good day, Ned! On the occasion of JOTW's 10th anniversary, here are some memories of JOTW and its nedwork:

I was an early-ish adopter of JOTW – back in 2001 or 2002. After doing communication work for years, but without the word “communication” in my title, I was a newly-minted official communications professional, with a still-wet BA in my grasp. A colleague, Irene Monley, suggested I join up. I immediately felt at home with the nedwork, although I've since misplaced my membership card.

Here's what I like about JOTW:

• Quotations – oft irreverent yet relevant, I scour each issue for these gems.

• Musical accompaniment – from the obscure to the sublime. In fact, once you featured my parents' CD, the Ken and Barb Lemons Quartet (jazz classics).

• The suggested, perhaps, maybe policy regarding the submission of t-shirts, hats or other trinkets (size XL). I think I sent you a small model truck once (size Tom Thumb).

• Piracy reports – when I was in grad school, during our international logistics class' discussion of the perils of shipping, I educated the class on modern piracy. Even the professor did not believe me when I said I received weekly piracy reports (but I improved my class standing when I proved it).

• Alternative job opportunities – I like them. I read them every week, even when I don't read the communication jobs because I'm such a happy camper that I'm not looking to change jobs just yet. For those of you who think they should be dropped from JOTW: Get your own listserv if it bothers you. Scroll past it, or close your eyes until the scary part is over.

• Good, old-fashioned American storytelling – I doubt I am the only reader who enjoys the stories about Ned's travels, family, pals, dog, the Navy and the Boy Scouts.

• Humor me – please! Even though I know it's coming, I can still be surprised by the March 32nd issue. I get a kick out of the sass provided by Ned, Mike, Connie, Robert, et al. Keep it coming!

Here's what I don't like about JOTW:

In honor of the start of JOTW's second decade, I'll offer up an old Scottish toast (you'll have to imagine me speaking in a very bad Scottish burr):

Here's to ye

Who's like ye?

No one –

They're all dead.

Here's to ye, faithful Ned! Thanks for the hundreds of emails and thousands of job listings, quotes, stories and quips.

Kind regards, cj

Connie J Mayse, MBA

*** From Kris Gallagher, ABC:

For 10 years, Ned's JOTW has stopped me from feeling guilty.

You see, I used to find out about job openings, but often didn't have any friends or professional colleagues who were interested in the spot. I always felt guilty about clicking the delete button, like I was throwing away a perfectly good sweater just because it didn't fit me. Somebody, somewhere, needed it.

Then along came Ned. (Anybody remember the tune to “Along Came Jones?”) Suddenly, I had a fast and easy way to circulate all those openings to people who were on the hunt. I have no idea if any of Ned's readers have gotten the jobs I've shared. But, I know they all had the chance to try on those “sweaters.” Instead of feeling bad about hitting “delete,” I feel good about hitting “send”. And that is a feeling I've been able to enjoy nearly every week for years.

Thanks, Ned. You're an angel (a tough, hard-nosed angel, but an angel nevertheless).

Kris Gallagher, ABC

*** From Larry Bearfield:

JOTW is 10???!!! Holy crap – no way!! That means that when JOTW was born I was pushing 50… My 3 Grandchildren weren't born yet and even Ferns Country Store had yet to arrive! I think we were still producing OpSki (Operation Ski & Snowboard) back then. I dunno. 10 years is a long time and my mind doesn't recall stuff. That's why we all have you. My hat is off to you Ned – you've persevered… you've put up with the rants…. you've taken the hits.. you've taken your initial kernel of an idea and nurtured it along into something that few understood in the beginning (and some are clueless still). One of the best parts is that I was there at the beginning when we talked about it. It's been fun watching JOTW grow up. But the even better part is that you've refused to grow up with it! Congrats! On to the 10 Years After.
