Just back from Drupal Camp LA, where I ended up giving three talks. It was fantastic to see several hundred people come out to a Drupal event over the weekend.

Jon mentioned we'd be at Drupal Camp LA this weekend, but he didn't mention what all we're doing and how big of an event this really is

You want to attend Drupal events that matter, and DrupalCampLA 2008 already has more than 270 attendees registered. If the pattern holds for Drupal events, the last week will include a lot of last minute registrations, making this a larger non-DrupalCon events.

Twitter won't work with my social network, because my social network relies on keyword taxonomies. So, right now, it's easy to associate twitter with a profile, because it's a 1-1 relationship. And I can build a twitter channel (#workhabitinc) for example, to pull from multiple twitter feeds.

For the last few months here at WorkHabit we've been busily creating a new kind of hosting platform. We've taken our expertise in scaling, hosting, and managing Drupal web sites and and layered that on top of cloud computing.

It seems every year there is a trend that pops up that I didn't realized was "hip" until I read it in someone else's blog. Ajax was one of those trends, a 5-6 year old technology that just blew up overnight and became a phenomenon.

"Adobe Air requires Adobe Air to function"


I'm trying to install Twhirl, which is an Adobe Air app on my MacBook, and Air keeps taking a dump while trying to install itself.

So I'm working on a project now where nodes are mass-imported from a third party. By default, these nodes are unpublished until the delegated party can add additional information that the import can't capture. We publish the node when it's through being reviewed and updated.

I submitted a patch to the activitystream module to allow it to hook into views properly. In this case the patch allows you to specify a specific source type (e.g. Twitter, Flickr, Digg,, etc.) and display only that source in a view.

Like a lot of you, I've had to create many many backgrounds for jQuery tabs.

When I was in high-school, I worked at an office supply chain in the "Business Machines" department. I sold computers, adding machines, Palm Pilots (the first revision!), printers, cables, you name it.

I'm writing this post to call attention to a new training event. It seems like Lullabot is once again on a training roll, with their new video and now a really interesting training event called Do It With Drupal.

Document Management has existed in many forms for decades now: Documentum, Docsys, Knowledgetree, Alfresco, and others. Most of the solutions have existed at the Enterprise level, and have had limited utility and penetration into smaller markets.

At the Sacramento DUG I did a demo of our S3Saver module.

The module is incredibly effective at moving files from a local files dir to S3 at save time, and has very little impact on a drupal install itself.

We've had a few comments from clients and prospects as we've grown over the last year that they'd like us to be more easily reachable. Well, we've listened.

A client asked me today about how to most effectively merge his changes from trunk to a production tag (in his case, tags/prod within his subversion repository).
