Don’t we all always need work?

I have always been on the lookout for new and interesting (and non-spam-like) ways to contact people for work. I recently stumbled onto this article at wired.com about folks in H’wood using IM to generate inquiries for new work.

Makes me want to try, however, the hard thing I’ve noticed these days is getting buddy names out of busy people who don’t want to be chatting all day long. If the bit about, “less than 10 percent of all business people use IM, roughly 20 million worldwide. But that number is increasing steadily,” holds any water than maybe it will go somewhere, someday…

…until then, freelancers still will be working the phones and networking events…
