Strangely, I received another email about the CCC Online and CCCC MemberWeb. Though my sense is I am not the only one who got this not very personal email from Chuck Bazerman. Here it is, in its entirety:
April 8, 2009
Dear Steven Krause,
We need your vision and commitment to lead us into our next stage of networked engagement. We are looking to fill two web editing positions, as listed below.
* The position of CCC Online Editor focuses on publication, and will coordinate closely with Kathi Yancey the CCC print edition editor.
* The MemberWeb Editor is concerned more with creating new ways for CCCC members to collaborate and stay in touch with others with common interests. This position will be parallel to similar positions for the other conferences of NCTE.
Both positions will receive technical support from the NCTE office; we are looking more for your vision, communicative skills, and commitment than we are for technical skills. Visit the call for applications for further details.
I hope either or both of these positions will be of interest to you, and we look forward to seeing your application.
Anyone else out there get this letter? I’m sort of curious what list I am on to be receiving this.
Anyway, here was my response:
Dear Chuck Bazerman, CCCC Chair:
Thanks for your email, but a) I already was invited and declined this invitation, and b) I’ve written about this in some detail on my blog, http://stevendkrause.com/2009/03/01/ncteccc-online-web-editor-positions-or-i-still-dont-think-they-quite-get-the-internets-and-that-worries-me/
Somehow, I am not expecting a reply….
