A great essay: 
". . .  it is the danger America faces today, as the 1 percent pulls away from everyone else and pursues an economic, political and social agenda that will increase that gap even further — ultimately destroying the open system that made America rich and allowed its 1 percent to thrive in the first place."

Friends don't let friends launch without testing. Take the #UXmarch  pledge to run a UX study in March. And I'll help!

Thanks. I typically post the Craigslist ads in Jobs/etcetera. If I'm looking for a specific group (e.g. salespeople), I may also post it in a jobs category that seems relevant to that group.
