Graphical & Technical Support
PowerPoint Presentation on the Web
Will you volunteer to put a Power Point Presentation on the BASIN website?
We have the latest version of a BASIN powerpoint presentation. This could be made available to people that will be making presentations on BASIN. We would like your help to post it electronically for easy downloading and to present it as HTML documents on the BASIN website. If this is a project you can commit to please contact Jim Waterman, via e-mail.
Quark 3.3 & CD Rom translation Local water wizard and land-scape architect Jim Knopf has agreed to let BASIN use some of the material from his new book about water-wise landscapes and gardens. The book has some great information on Boulder's water use and comparisons to other community's water costs and consumption.
The material is on a zip drive with the software being Quark 3.3 for Mac. Ideally a newer version of Quark might allow direct translation to html....but if not we could pull out appropriate information and save into a format we can make webpages out of. He's also got many photos of local native or drought-tolerant plants on a Photo CD. It should take a few hours to go through the zip drive and pull off appropriate materials.

Water and Kids everywhere! Develop a BASIN wesite
site devoted to linking with other water-related programs around the
world, especially those involving kids. The idea is that people in
different parts of the world could learn about the
Boulder area and water-related topics from BASIN.... and they could share
through BASIN things relating to their regional water. Part
of this dream would be for kids in, say Brazil or
Tajikistan, (or Maryland) to network together through the
common-denominator of water.... and to have a chance to share their own
ideas/images. Task requires surfing and web page design.
