"The gift of fantasy has meant more to me than my talent for absorbing positive knowledge."
– Albert Einstein
If you have a bit of time this summer and fancy an excuse to investigate some of the more strange and interesting things about the world, all the while contributing to your favourite magazine, it's your lucky day. Hack Circus is looking for interns.
Right now we're working on issue #4, and we'd like to find a few people who are naturally excited about the weird and wonderful stuff happening on the fringes of science and at the edges of the credible. We've looked at synthetic universes, perception distortion, communication with the distant future, real devices from fictional worlds, armoured vehicles, security technology, audio reconstructions of reality, lying for a living, and loads more!
Hack Circus crosses the boundaries of the real and the speculative, and refuses to accept that things can't be done. The project has been featured in the Guardian, The Times and The Huffington Post, and we have run three sell-out events so far.
So, do you want to be part of this strange new world? Do you have a knack for fresh approaches, on-topic interview ideas and compelling, labyrinthine online research? Are you able to come to Brighton or London for a chat in July, or Sheffield in August (travel covered)? You'll have a couple of hours a week to spare through July and/or August, be looking for some fun, laid-back media experience (you can probably do most of it from home) and enjoy working to a unique brief. Email firstname.lastname@example.org asap.
