I interrupt this blogging hiatus to announce a job opportunity.
Our team and our sites have an outstanding reputation in the online journalism industry. We do things other news sites don't even *dream* of doing, and we're not afraid to take risks. Here's what people have been writing about us lately:
- Editor and Publisher: Dayparting More Popular on Newspaper Sites
- Poynter's Convergence Chaser: Small town, big convergence goals
- Poynter's E-Media Tidbits: Hogging the Awards
If you're in the online news biz, this is the opportunity of your career. If you're not in the online news biz, don't let that scare you; journalism experience is preferred but not required.
Here's a general idea of what we're looking for:
- Expert knowledge of PHP on the Apache Web server.
- Expert knowledge of HTML/XHTML.
- Experience designing, maintaining and programming Web interfaces to databases, particularly MySQL.
- Experience building custom Web publishing systems/tools and managing dynamic Web sites.
You'd work directly with me. I am a nice guy.
Lawrence is a great place. It's a college town, 30 miles from Kansas City, with a thriving music scene, excellent local restaurants and an outstanding downtown that has put two malls out of business. I'm a city person -- I was born and raised in Chicago and worked in Atlanta before this job -- but I love this place.

UPDATE, MANY YEARS LATER: This job was taken by Simon Willison.
