My #11NTC #Ignite Presentation - The CPR

Here are the slides for the Ignite presentation I gave at the 2011 Nonprofit Technology Conference in Washington, DC.  At CivicActions, we're passionate about supporting and serving our clients in achieving their missions. 

The CPR is a document format and a process for clarifying the outcomes and intentions of doing anything.  Several team members at CivicActions use it, we've used it with clients and I personally use it all the time. I'm happy to share this with you.

What the Frack is Bitcoin and Can I Use it with Drupal?

Bitcoin is peer-to-peer digital currency. Like Napster or Limewire, it does not rely on a central trusted issuer, but upon a network. Currently, one bitcoin is worth about $0.90 US.

Reproducing Social Exclusion in The Name of Openness and Transparency

Ludwig Mies van der Rohe Chicago's world-renowned architecture is literally the history of urban industrial growth in the last century. Our city has buildings in every style, starting with the Burnham and Root projects like the Rookery and Monadnock buildings and continuing through Mies van der Rohe (IBM Plaza, 330 N. Wabash) and his disciples at Skidmore Owings and Merrill (Willis Tower [originally Sears Tower], John Hancock Tower). However, there are architectural features of our city that are renowned and notorious, and their history can be a parable for our work as people who manufacture the web.

Thoughts on Configuration Management

This is a sketch of how some of the ideas discussed in the core conversations configuration management sessions yesterday might look in practice. Obviously this is just one idea and there are plenty of other valid approaches (overall of for any specific piece) - we don't want to get too specific yet. For example, some of what I describe could probably happily live in contrib. I think my big picture point is that the approaches discussed are not mutually exclusive, and in fact we probably need bits of each of them.
