To enter the journalism contest, visit www.myspace.com/myspacejournal and answer one of the following questions via video on MySpaceTV.
  • If you were given the opportunity to take one person (living or historical figure) to Davos in order to make an impact on the conference, who would it be and why?
  • If you could engage the entire MySpace community in doing one thing to help make an economic difference, what would it be?
  • Why do you deserve the chance to attend the World Economic Forum as the MySpace Special Correspondent and how will your participation engage the audience?

WSJ seeks law blogger

The Wall Street Journal is hiring a full-time blogger for its law blog, "widely read by lawyers and general readers alike." The blogger will also have the chance to write for the print edition and do video/multimedia/speaking engagements. Might be a good fit for journalist-turned-law student-turned-bitter corporate lawyer.

New investigative journalism organization hiring

Former Wall Street Journal managing editor Paul Steiger recently wrote an interesting piece chronicling the history of print media and what’s to come in the future.

At the end of his article, he announced his move to Pro Publica, a non-profit newsroom “dedicated to reporting on abuses of power by anyone with power: government, business, unions, universities, school systems, doctors, hospitals, lawyers, courts, nonprofits, media.”

With $10 million pledged in annual funding and a staff of 24 investigative journalists -- including former Oregonian managing editor Stephen Engelberg -- this organization could provide an important public service many newspapers can no longer afford to.

Interested in investigative reporting? Why not shoot a resume to journalismjobs@propublica.org.
