I'm working on a research project for a major conservative think tank in DC. I'm down to the final stages, part of which includes "grunt work" of summarizing entire news articles into bite-sized paragraphs of 100 words or less as an appendix.
The last time I asked for help like this, my article got published on the cover of the NRA's America's First Freedom, so this is the real deal.
I'm looking for dedicated Freepers who can read a news story and write a brief summary of the details. It's not hard, just time-consuming. We're only talking a couple hundred summaries max.
And yes, I'd be willing to pay on a per-summary basis.
Freepmail me if interested. Time is of the essence. (Don't message me if you don't mean it!)
By the way, if you want to volunteer your time, I’ll turn around and donate the money to FR!
How long would we have to do it and how much on average do you pay per summary?
Oh, two other things:
1) Nice work on Jeanine Pirro’s show!
2) How long are the articles that need summarizing?
You’ll probably get something that’s written much better than the original article was.
I’ll be glad to do it either gratis or a FR donation. I’m a pro.
Check your inbox.
Could I get a tech ping for a banglist bump? Thanks!
I’d be willing to help gratis, if I could somehow get a byline mention on 10% to 15% of the summaries...
I am definitely not a pro like Rudder, but I can rant on FR with the best of them.
You can get it done for next to nothing in nearly no time on vworker.com
Last time you put up a job for FRiends, I was technically hobbled. Still am.
But I’m pinging a fellow FReeper who may be happy to earn some scratch and for a 2A cause, as well. That is, if you can lure him out of the garden long enough... LOL
Be glad to assist if I can. Former newspaperman heavily involved in research and computer-assisted reporting, including database creation.
