Embedded in Blogistan: An Intern's Survival Journal, Part 1

Nathan Edwards

Dear Mom and Dad:

How are you? I am fine. Camp is great. As Maximum PC's newest intern, I'm responsible for lots of fun things, like uploading stories to the web, writing QuickStart briefs (that's the department at the front of the magazine where the articles are small), and putting together PDF archives of old issues so subscribers and freeloaders can get them without paying for them. I also help with shipping, add my pearls of wisdom to the podcast, antagonize the Murph , and provide an easy target for Gordon's brutal verbal attacks.

I've been here for a few weeks and I think I’m getting my feet on the ground. There was an earthquake last week but I apparently slept through it. Yay West Coast!

I am learning lots of cool stuff here at camp Maximum PC, like it takes Dave two tries to buy the right motherboard, and Hitachi makes decent components but terrible hamburgers, and that Peggle is a good use of the EIC's time.

Well, I gotta run. It's bonfire night and the other intern is missing. Tom says she's lost in the woods, so I guess I better go find her before the bears do.
