UUs looking for a Web site?

Here's something amazing and ambitious: A group of Unitarian Universalist young adults in the Pacific Northwest have pooled their Web skills into a site design and hosting service for their fellow UUs. Here's the amazing part: BUURN.org (yes, it's an acronym: "Building UU Resource Networks") is free to Unitarian Universalist groups and events.

Let's not all flood them with requests all at once — and, depending on your group's needs, budget, and timeline, you really may want to invest cash in developing a Web site rather than depending on a gracious offer of free labor — but still, that's pretty cool.

Thanks for the link Chris. I've been struggling to set up a basic web site for a small UU group (of which I am a part) in Stowe, VT.

I'll be contacting the BUURN folks for some much needed help.

Hey hey! My name's Dev, and I started BUURN.org. Here's my shameless plug for it...the services are free or at-cost for everything we do, so even complex sites don't cost more than $20-$30 a year. Why spend hundreds per year if you can save money and get the same result?

As far as free labor goes, we're not getting deluged or anything, so ask! Some of us are good enough to set up a complete site in a few hours.

Hope to talk to ya soon!
