Oobject is hiring ‘curators’. You should have a great eye and knowledge of design and gadgets. To apply, create a sample Oobject style list in the topic of your choice, on http://wists.com (i.e. 10-15 visual bookmarks with one of two sentences describing each item), and send us an email with the title and a short description, and a link to your bio and/or blog. email: curator[at]oobject.com
There are dozens of gadget sites on the web, these days. Oobject is a bit different.
Oobject is somewhere between a blog and a directory. We pick topics for lists of gadgets . People then suggest items to go into them by tagging things as Oobject in wists. Visitors then vote on items to create something like ‘Billboard charts for gadgets’, voted by everyone.
Some of the topics we pick will be standard categories such as ‘top digital SLRs’. These will be constantly updated over time, with new items. Other topics will be quirky and fun, one offs, where we find a particularly interesting topic such as ‘retro soviet gadgets’.
Each day, instead of single blog posts, we will feature a single topic which is new or has been newly updated.
Oobject is part of Curations. A group of sites, updated daily with hand edited picks by passionate enthusiasts.
