Seeking interns for new start-up, beginning January 09

I’m working with some very cool people on a new start-up we will launch on Q1 09. January is crunch month, February is beta and we’re going into regular operation (we hope) by March.

Seeking the following for unpaid positions, 10-20 hours per week:
1) Blogging/editorial interns: Bloggers or journalism students or others interested in writing and researching on on-going basis. Must have clips or blog to show and must have work history showing responsibility. Will be writing and researching, with credit.
2) Research/analyst types to work on some analytic projects, create charts and graphs for web site. Prior experience with web, doing research and crunching data preferred.
3) Social markerting/marketing/biz dev student to work on outreach, distribution, and business side. Good experience for MBA still in school.

Company is based in Oakland, CA, but you do not need to be local. You do need to want to help make a cool new project happen and get credit for it. Would like a 3-6 month commitment.
Will bring on 1-4 people, send expression of interest, resume web links to smernit gmail. Phone interviews, in person if you are here. Sell me why this is a good fit for you (I realize I am tellling you very little about the focus, sorry….more if you make it to next round.)
