Subject: The Shakespeare Standard | New Features, Call for Editors
The Shakespeare Standard (http://theshakespearestandard.com) introduces several new features, including
The Shakespeare Wave: The Shakespeare Standard is host to the first (known) Shakespeare-centered Wave (http://theshakespearestandard.com/wave/). Google Wave (http://wave.google.com/about.html) is a real-time communication/document application that has been used to host electronic conferences, academic course work, and other real-time events. The Wave can be used to share documents, host discussions, conduct informal polls, share photos and videos, and a variety of other extensions. A Google account with Wave is required. This really is a phenomenal tool and worth a few minutes of your time. Incidentally, we're also interested in adding other related waves, so please feel free to suggest your own.
The Production Hub and Event Calendar (http://theshakespearestandard/production-hub/): The Shakespeare Standard hosts an online event calendar for all manner of Shakespeare-related events, including conferences, productions, lectures, etc. Users can schedule events themselves; events are broadcast site-wide so that all readers will encounter the events regardless of the page they're on.
The Shakespeare Standard (http://theshakespearestandard.com) seeks volunteer editorial staff in the following areas:
-Performance (Assistant/Associate Editors): review development, feature development, archiving, "Common Players" feature
-Images (Assistant/Associate/Full Editors): production photo development, rights, etc.
-Voices (Assistant/Associate/Full Editors): editorial content, podcasting, community interaction, discussion generation, polls, etc.
-Publications (Assistant/Associate/Full Editors): books and journals

Editors will be responsible for developing and publishing area-related content for TSS in accordance with our editorial policies, including posting news items in their designated areas, and for generating original content for the site at the rate of 2-3 items per month.
More features, including what we hope to be our first edition of an early modern resource, are slated for the next few weeks.
