Wanted: Beastly Photo Editor

Scoop.jpgThe Daily Beast will evolve before your eyes,” promised Tina Brown last fall. “We began building our site in mid-July [2008] and wanted to put it up ASAP in beta so that its further development could be driven by the interplay between our sensibility and our users’ responses.” Here’s your chance to be a part of the evolution and interplay! Brown’s Barry Diller-backed venture is seeking a photo editor to join its L.A. office. In addition to developing visual elements of the site, the position involves collaborating with reporters and editors and thinking outside of the Beast by “finding creative new ways to source photos for stories.” When in doubt, ask yourself: What would Scoop‘s William Boot do?

Dangerous Curves Ahead: Gehry Sued By MIT

When we heard that Frank Gehry had been sued, it was not, as we had expected, by Barry Diller for designing a structurally-unsound InterActiveCorp HQ unable to support all internet entities within. Instead, he’s being hung out to dry by MIT, who is claiming its Stata Center (angular strife illustrated in AP photo to the right) has “serious design flaws”:

The school alleges the center, completed in spring 2004, has persistent leaks, drainage problems and mold growing on its brick exterior. It says accumulations of snow and ice have fallen dangerously from window boxes and other areas of its roofs, blocking emergency exits and causing damage.

Another story in the Boston Globe gets several experts to talk about the “disaster,” “risks” and “leaking,” including the author of a book we imagine has more than a few chapters on Gehry: Architecture of the Absurd: How ‘Genius’ Disfigured a Practical Art.
