By Larry Smith

Software programmer: no human interaction necessary.
Certainty is overrated. Became a freelancer.
I am Librarian, hear me whisper.
Thankless, but everyone needs an assistant.
Making things better with wireframes.
Because graduating these days means choose-your-own-adventure.
You want it done by when?

There are just a few days left until our July 16 cutoff date for the first “Six Words About Work” Challenge— “My Job: Why I Do What I Do.” One winning Six-Word Work scribe (from each of the U.S., UK, and Canada) per topic will win his or her choice of an iPad2 or BlackBerry Playbook. All entries also are eligible to be part of a special Six Words About Work book we’re publishing this fall. Our judge for Challenge #1, Gretchen Rubin creator of The Happiness Project blog and New York Times bestselling book, The Happiness Project,, will pour over the responses and we’ll announce our first winner on July 20.
