Intern at LibraryThing!

Not sure what to do with your summer? I just posted this to a few local lists—librarians, design people, etc. I thought I'd post it here too., the innovative social 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 (Portland, Maine), 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.

About LibraryThing:

LibraryThing ( is a social networking and social cataloging site for book lovers. Over 700,000 members have used the site to catalog over 40 million books--and created a whole new way of relating to books and to book people.

I'd love to work with you guys, but what kind of Web 2.0 design work would you be requiring?

I don't want to waste people's time applying if I'm not suitable for your requirements.

It looks like your email address at the bottom of your request for intern box doesn't match your address listed in the masthead.

Hope you haven't missed the intern of your dreams.
