Freelancers With Multimedia Skills Wanted

“I come from a print background, and I think we have an advantage on the Web,” says Loop21′s newest EIC.

Instead of decrying the decline of print, Lisa Armstrong is embracing it, and making the site truly reflects the ethos of the Internet. “Rather than just presenting information to our audience, we want people to respond.
