Live in the Northwestern US, particularly in Oregon? Glassist of any description? You probably oughta be in the Oregon Glass Guild, OGG. Nice organization of really nice folk, have interesting meetings and occasional group discounts on cool stuff.

They’re helping me coordinate volunteers for the 2008 Glass Art Society’s international glass conference, GAS, which will be held in Portland, OR. They also set up neat field trips.

Anyway, I’m bringing this up at the moment because my membership dues are, er, due, been thinking about it…and tonight I’m giving a talk about how glass artists can build websites on the cheap (use a blog). Here’s the¬†presentation (careful–it’s a 2MB Flash file) and the handout. (a 193K PDF).

You’re welcome to look it over, and post any comments, questions, etc.
