Smallest GA workshop in UUA history?
How I love the ten people who showed up for the workshop I led with UUA webmaster Julie Albanese Saturday evening about the UUA's new face on the Web. (We were scheduled during the abysmal workshop slot between the dinner break and Mary Oliver's Ware Lecture. And Forrest Church was debuting his Hallmark Channel TV program, "The American Creed" at the same time, among other apparently more compelling things.) I love those ten people even though four of them work for the UUA or volunteer for its GA Web reporting team. The other six of you are now my favorite people. You may have yawned once or twice between 7:15 and 8:30, but you did not fall asleep, even when I tried to explain RSS. That counts for something, in my book.
I suppose the low turnout could also be attributed to the success of executive vice president Kay Montgomery's brief introduction to uuworld.org and the coming-soon relaunch of UUA.org during her plenary report that afternoon, which included my first appearance on the General Assembly stage. (Skip ahead to the 30-minute mark in the video of Plenary VI.) If that doesn't give you enough of a glimpse of the exciting changes in store for UUA.org, check out the PowerPoint presentation about the redesigned site.
