This isn’t a paid classified section. It’s just a place where we — you and I — can post up opportunities we discover in our ramblings, or need to fill. Let me know of any gigs you’d like to include here. Otherwise, I’m just going to put up what I see while walking around town. If you submit news about a vacancy, please let us know when you no longer wish it to appear here — no sense having postings from a year or more ago hanging around (and our apologies for not more aggressively scrubbing the listings in the past; we’ll try to keep this bulletin board spruced up).
