That website name that was mentioned was going to range in the thousands of dollars, I'm being told, but I have found a website that is called www.slab-city.com which could be cheaper (I don't see how a dash makes our breaks a website name price, but works for me) but, honestly it's going to take a while to get off of the ground on this one for me. I don't know what time frame you are working on but it would be awesome if maybe we could put our thoughts together on this. I'll be there in early may to observe and find out what the community wants to see on the webpage (blogs, news, chats, events, resources, etc.). I was also thinking along the lines of making part of the website community run and driven( like storyline articles, blogs, and chats). I'll be making the website while I'm there to get an idea of design, I just won't start publishing it until I can secure a domain name. I'm looking at two or three weeks there getting a feel for the place, and then about two to three months before the website is actually up due to financial reasons.
The owner wants to let it go for no less than 9,850! I was shocked. I would love to get in together on this. I feel like we could help each other. I'm going mid May.. Sometime around/after the 12th.
I don't believe I mentioned, but I'm going to shoot a passion project about Slab City. Pretty much why people chose to live there, just highlighting the pros of the community. Things like that. If you want to know more I can DM you. I spoke to Sue and got all the rights to film, I'm not sure if you have spoken to anyone out there?
I can get some different types of interviews for you for the website. Even just written ones which could be a pretty cool section for the site. I'm also going to be speaking to Builder Bill who sets up the Range and all that, I can get the scoop on all the events happening there.
