    Interesting article. I currently work as a part-time publicist, creator/editor-in-chief of experimental culture website, SHARP OBJEX, and volunteer for a mainstream media online magazine. My friend told me about this site, and I’m thinking about signing up for a copy-editing job. Not sure how that measures up compared to freelance writing, but I do so much of that already I need a change!

    I used to be a freelance slave for demand studios (lower case). They pay $3.00 for translation and $1.50 for a translation review in Brazil. As people do in China, they have Brazilians working for them for peanuts. I know why it’s called “demand”. They start making you believe that you’re free to choose your workload giving you 20 translations a week, but at the end they tell you that you must complete 35 translations if you want to keep the job. I would like to know if they pay any taxes to the Brazilian government to use its people like that. Oh! As for a reviewer they start asking 25 revisions and end up “demanding” 100. The slavers should be in jail. One more thing, when I started reviewing for them I had compliments for the good job, but when I had 100 reviews a week and started letting mistakes pass because of the overload of work I was fired.
