So, you want to make money on the Web? And do you love sports? Guess what, kids: You can be a a general, editor, Weblogs at ESPN.com!
Job highlights include:
• "This position requires a passion for and in-depth knowledge of Web 2.0 objectives and sports Weblogs, with extensive background blogging, editing or producing content about sports." (We swear to God, if we hear the term "Web 2.0" one more time, we're taking Henry Abbott hostage.)
• "Depending upon specific coverage area or beat, the job may include responsibility for the daily content and regular "refreshes" of an assigned sports page or area of the ESPN.com site. In the absence of a senior or deputy editor, the General Editor may be called upon to lead a group, shift or key coverage area of the site."
• Here's our favorite: "Has a basic appreciation of popular culture, e.g., "what's cool" and contributes to an understanding of the tastes of ESPN's audiences."
So, if you know "what's cool," we encourage you all to apply.
