Note: For those who haven't done this whole interviewing for a job/internship thing before, here's some advice: get to know my work before you apply. Get a copy of Plazm magazine to start with (Powell's & other locations in Portland; current & back issues at www.plazm.com/store). Check out plazm.org, magdalen.com, do some Googling. If you're in Portland, drop by Reed College and see my current installation. Hundreds of candidates apply for my internships. If you don't have the time and commitment level to do this homework, I'll have to assume you don't have the time and commitment level to be an intern.
