The Electronic Frontier Foundation is looking for a writer who is 
intimately familiar with the Internet to be the main writer and 
researcher for the world's most user-friendly guide connecting 
with the net.  

We need to find a writer who is within easy reach of our offices 
in Cambridge, MA, knows how to navigate the Internet, understands such 
items as ftp, irc, archie, etc and can explain them to a non-technical
enduser. This will NOT be a technical reference.  What we have in mind
is the antithesis of Unix manual pages.

The writer will work with the staff of the EFF, various net 
personalities, and other sources of information.  The writer will 
report directly to the Director of Communications who will assume 
the role of editor for the duration of the project.

We will offer a fee in installments over the course of the project 
as an advance against royalties.  This will be negotiated but will 
reflect the industry standard.

If you think you can write a guide to the Internet that is both 
easy to  understand, technically correct, and entertaining, please 
send me a short note about what you've done in the last three 
years, and , more important, a brief statement about what's you'd 
do if you were to write "The Essential Guide to the Net".
