Help needed! - help the community|
We need people in the community to get involved and help out all the time.
Roles including moderation of posts, to attending and reviewing IT events.
Contributing Researcher Required
At NERDS>, reporting the news is about keeping our loyal readership
informed and updated about technology in the UK, while openly discussing,
and viewing opinions... To explain and describe the implications and
choices relating to developments and applications of technology - the news.
Our aim is to provide an open forum for discussing news, rather than
publicity. Your task, the task of a ‘Contributing Researcher' would involve:
- investigating and reporting weekly news articles
- helping to research topics and issues - through interviewing, site visits, online research, etc..
- helping to check and ensure accuracy of newsletter - short timescales!!
- visiting/attending events, summarise and evaluate them
- replying to email, and monitoring the online forum & mailing list
For this role you must show extensive and valued experience of working
within the IT sector, and a fluid understanding of related business
techniques and commercial pressures on the Industry. Your skill and style
in writing to evaluate, compare and summarise technology should be distinct,
clear and informative, while most importantly friendly and enjoyable to read.
You must also be highly organised and able to research and report on tight
I realise that there is a ‘vast' amount of work involved, if only due to
the weekly deadline, this is precisely why I need a contributor. The Briefing
is unique from most other newsletters, ‘people actually make time to read it',
and it is only sent to people who ask for it! Yet, it holds a vast audience
that other publishers aspire to. ..and people can rely that everything
published is our honest view, not restricted or influenced by outside pressures.
The position is part-time from home, and will involve close working with
myself, probably most suited to a freelance journalist, student, retired person
- somebody who has control over all their time throughout the week. Your
locality is not important, other than your access to a telephone, and obviously
the Internet. To apply for the position please email me with your aspirations,
references of experience, and samples of written work.
- Kyle Lamb
To sponsor a copy of ‘The Briefing' costs £0.01 A ‘sponsor' is a recommended
company, organisation, product or service who pays for x copies of the newsletter,
in return they are ‘recommended' by the author within their sponsored copies.
It is the only advertisement within each e-mailed copy (web version has no adds).
If you are interested in sponsoring, please contact Kyle Lamb.

Writers & Journalists Required
We are looking for prospective writers & journalists to produce a new range
of newsletters, e-zines and associated content. As an added incentive, payment
is directly based upon the number of subscribers of your newsletter or e-zine.
We provide all tools, the bandwidth, the style guide, the recognized status, the
advertising and promotion, the audience.... and what is more, we teach you how to
do it - to create fact-ful newsletter/e-zine and site with many thousands of
subscribers, to be recognised within your industry!
These newsletters, and the larger scale e-zines will each be set-up as separate
entities. Consider the analogy of a ‘pop group', as the agent we take you and
your idea, your concept, and show you, guide you through the steps to make it into
a reality, a success. Nobody is promising a short-cut, or an easy route to success,
but rather our experience and resources as an accomplished and proven publisher.
If you have an existing newsletter, a developing concept or even a successful
production, please approach us, we might be able to accommodate you too, either
as consultants, or as the agent and owning publishing house.
If you're interested in writing, or starting a newsletter/e-zine, please don't
hesitate to contact us. - NERDStart> 2000 Team
