New Ownership for the Cone6Pots Network

Andrea Wolf and Gabriel Takacs are the new owners and managers of the network. They have solid credentials as ceramicists and perhaps more importantly for this network, as web/business developers. George Lewter will continue on as a member, friend, and promoter.

Reviving the network is going to require a leap of faith, with members providing new, relevant content, feedback, connections to outside content, and yes, buzz. We need more BUZZ.
