The Austin Sun Community volunteer staff is excited to serve the vision of reconnecting those who made the Austin Sun happen–from janitor, to proofreader, photographers, illustrator, writers, to ad salespeople, advertisers, paper route people, as well as editors, bookkeepers, and the lawyer.
Think of all the important tasks that went into getting just one issue of The Sun out!
We are now getting reports of Austin Sun Alumni reconnecting on the West Coast! Abundant Joy and exuberance is being expressed around these important reconnections. And of the over 100 individuals who are on the list, only one person has expressed any reservations, but we are in hopes that he will come back around and share in the joy.
The Sun was a magical publication in a magical time, and some of us have discovered the creative magic to be more powerful now as it was then. But after 30 years, it has evolved; and so have we. Please let us know if you want to serve in this community in any way, and join with us to make various reconnections and events all possible.
We want to especially thank Eric (Enrique Pasa) Rosenblum for his thoughtful suggestion how to make the site more user friendly. Under his advisement, we have created the Forum as an area for people to post their introductions, events, ideas, remembrances and hold conversations online.
We tried the Forum route once before, but it had problems with a great number of Russian Kiddie Porn advertisers, so we trying some new software, hoping that it will work out much better.
