New Republic art critic Bad Lee Siegel, having come to terms with what a horrible place the Internet is and all the horrible things it made him do, now plans to ride that train as far as it will go. And he wants you to come too! Atrios forwards this listmail from Siegel:
I'm looking for a research assistant to help me with a book about Internet culture that I'm writing for Doubleday, which is due to be finished by the end of next March. My name is Lee Siegel, and I'm a senior editor at the New Republic, and the author of "Falling Upwards: Essays in Defense of the Imagination," a collection of essays that has just been published.Give the man credit for taking the bull by the horns. Join him on his journey into the heart of darkness, won't you?
I would prefer a graduate student. Salary is to be decided with the person I hire.
Anyone who is interested can respond to me at this email address : [address redacted]
