Bush Telly web sites undergo a facelift

posted Sep 12, 2010, 12:03 AM by Mike Peters   [ updated Sep 16, 2010, 8:42 PM ]

All of the Bush Telly web sites are getting a big tweak to make it easier for supporters to get involved. Free cloud services provided by Google, Microsoft, PayPal, Amazon, Adobe and others are being used to host the new web sites.
One of the key benefits will be providing an online office available where ever filming is taking place. The biggest challenge is creating a uniform navigation and look across multiple websites.
The new web sites will be available over the next few weeks.
