On a personal note, despite prodigious efforts and time taken to post a resume on the change.gov site, and despite a gilded record of media work in two UN agencies, I have not elicited a peep from the Obama folk regarding my hope of becoming a media person in Susan Rice’s UN office. I would not be amused if I could not exist in my hermit like no-spend mode and happily blog and Twitter all day.

But I do think that the Obama folk shouid be a bit more proactive in dealing with the 300K or so who posted resumes. Acknowledgment is about the only antidote to feeling utterly ignored. I wonder if they took a look at my age and threw it into a No pile.

If they are just delayed, ignore the above. I am still a short walk from the HQ.
