In Hollywood, where everyone’s a freelancer and career networking veers between art and warfare, a new weapon is emerging as champion: instant messaging, reports Wired.

“Movie producers, directors, actors and crew workers bouncing from one job to the next have traditionally relied on agents and Rolodexes for finding their next gigs. But these days, many are discovering it’s easier to post their job availability on IM.
