  4. 4. July 6, 2011As most of you know (some in more detail than others), Im no longer employed byBlue Sky Factory. Unfortunately, thats all I can really say until next week. That being said, Imin the process of revamping my resume - an interactive PDF.Im working on a blog post titled "Social Media Experiment: Find a New Job Using SocialNetworks" that will publish sometime next week. In the post, Im going to do a *voice-over formy "interactive PDF resume" and was hoping to include some video testimonials. This is whereyou all come in, should you choose to participate. How you can help: • Create a short (less than 29 seconds), fun, creative, "This is why you need to hire DJ" video. • Post to YouTube as unlisted (for now) and email me the URL ... OR send me raw video file.If you dont have the time, dont feel like you know me well enough, or just dont want toparticipate, I totally understand.If you do choose to help out, I can promise you virtual bear hugs and coffee/beer toasts (or tequila for Jay; martini for Webster, diet coke for Falls, wine/snakebite for Amber). I will also shout from the rooftops of Salt Lake City about howawesome you are all and show some link love/juice on my blog. #ProjectAwesome @djwaldow
