A New MuseHack Project!

So we’re trying an experiment at MuseHack.

A lot of times I meet people looking for some geeky jobs. Or maybe they just want an opportunity to hone skills, like blogging or doing art.

I also have worked with a number conventions and everyone talks about a need for talent. Several times I’ve hooked people up who needed art or writing.

So what I’m doing is this – I want to try and connect people via MuseHack.

The idea is this. Every week or so I’ll collect posts from:
A) People who need talent (paid or not)
B) People who want to use their talents and get opportunities.

I’ll post them. Repeat as necessary.

If you’re back in the market doing freelance art, need some people for your con, want a place to blog, I’m going to see about setting up a clearinghouse for people. All I ask is if you get posted, you tell people about it!

Let me know if you’re interested – and contact me if you want in!

And Muse Hack Is Live!

Remember Fan To Pro?  Well that was a site I and my friend Bonnie founded to speak on geeky careers and the fan/geek/otaku path to prodom.  But we found it limiting over time, so we “evolved” it with the expanded staff to  . . .

MUSEHACK

MuseHack is about people using, applying, improving, and owning their creativity, inspiration, and passion.  Jobs are a part of it, but we wanted to go further.  We call it “Geekery Applied.”

So there will be plenty of career stuff (courtesy of yours truly), our creative columns from Scott and Serdar, the return of Bonnie, more from Rob, and new guest and regular columnists.  Well be covering:

Careers – Using what you love to make money.  Also all the old Fan To Pro content is at the site!

Creativity – Getting your mind moving, improving your creativity, and odd and interesting things.

Community – Great events, conventions, and building community.

Capability – Improving your skills and abilities, and taking control of your life and career.

So be sure to job by, and subscribe to the RSS feed or newsletter!  In fact we may want you to write for us!
