  • :We're looking for someone to take on a once-in-a-lifetime assignment: spend a Month at the Museum, to live and breathe science 24/7 for 30 days. From October 20 to November 18, 2010, this person's mission will be to experience all the fun and education that fits in this historic 14-acre building, living here and reporting your experience to the outside world. There will be plenty of time to explore the Museum and its exhibits after hours, with access to rarely seen nooks and crannies of this 77-year-old institution. Sure, it's a commitment. But if you are chosen and can successfully complete Month at the Museum, you'll walk away with a prize of $10,000, a package of tech gadgets, and new knowledge and experiences that may just transform you."

    Ooooh. Somebody should jump on this. And then smuggle me in with you.

  • "Welcome to Work in Progress, our monthly missive from the front lines of literature. Before Joyce finished Finnegans Wake, he called it Work in Progress, and we take our cue from his formlessness. Think of this as a shifting space—an exhibition, a meet-and-greet, a freak show—curated by our editors and writers, delivered here and to your inbox."

    Think you can stand seeing how the sausage is made? FSG opens up the writing and publishing "freak show" to the public. Via Helen DeWitt's http://paperpools.blogspot.com/
