We produce finished pages for newspapers around the U.S. on hard print deadlines every day in a virtual newsroom that uses a browser-based CMS, InDesign CS4, Adobe PDFs and Google documents, as well as basic in-house systems. Our staff is far-flung, but Skype, Gmail and the Internet allow us to banter and interact like a well-seasoned copy desk.

*** No, they don't. ***

If you meet these qualifications and are interested:
1) Send your resume to kevinbanas (at) gmail (dot) com
2) Answer the following question in one paragraph or less: "Who is your favorite movie character and why?"

They're still looking. Maybe the previous applicants picked the wrong character. Or maybe it was the $12 an hour.

They appear to have upgraded to their own domain from someone's personal Gmail account, though.

What's a "copy desk?" Oh, right. I used to run it when my paper had one.

"Send resume to Kevin Banas at his gmail account."

Could this be your next boss?
