Accelerating Drupal 8 Adoption | Acquia

Fri, 01/29/2016 - 16:25 -- rprice

$500k should be directly allocated to external maintainers and expert-level Drupal developers in the community This would ensure that we would have a group of leaders in the project who could immediately understand the correct D8 approach, quickly turn around a D8 version of a module and un-block the patch-acceptance process by working with their connections in the Drupal community. All external contributors would be paid at a community rate to magnify the benefit of the development fund

What is Tipglo? Tipglo is a platform that allows you to communicate with people who and are difficult to reach. Authors, celebrities, video producers, experts, bloggers, journalists, musicians – use Tipglo to respond to their fans. If I have a question can’t I just send an email or a tweet? Yes, you can, but you may not receive a response. Some people receive dozens, if not hundreds, of messages each day. They can't respond to most of them. If you need a personal response, Tipglo is a way to cut through the clutter and get attention. When will my card be charged?

Announcing the Drupal 8 Accelerate Program | Drupal Association

Tue, 12/09/2014 - 10:23 -- rprice

we are not deciding WHAT gets funded. This gets handled by the branch maintainers, keeping the Association on the right side of the “we don’t direct the project” line. The Drupal 8 Accelerate program is a fantastic opportunity for the Association to support and amplify community efforts. All of our favorite work at the Association follows this model - DrupalCon session selection, Community Cultivation Grants, Global Training Days, and DrupalCamp Fiscal Sponsorship to name a few. We’re here to make it easier for you to innovate, and this program is yet another example.

Orlando approves $100,000 for seed fund - Orlando Sentinel

Wed, 11/05/2014 - 18:09 -- rprice

A new Orlando seed fund will pursue a federal grant after the city council helped push it past the required $250,000 in matching funds Monday. City officials unanimously approved $100,000 for StarterCorps, a non-profit organization which will be housed at the downtown Orlando coworking space Canvs. StarterCorps executive director Kirstie Chadwick, a veteran of Orlando's technology startup community, said the council's support could go a long way toward helping StarterCorps receive the grant. "It's huge," she said.

At Matadero, Red Bull Adds Money (and Energy) to Culture - NYTimes.com

Thu, 10/17/2013 - 14:09 -- rprice

Now Matadero is evolving into a cultural laboratory, where a new arts financing strategy is being tested. Companies and institutions are providing financial support to supplement dwindling government arts subsidies, but with a twist: they don’t just send checks, they move in. Within the walled 59,000-square-foot center, there are public theaters and exhibition spaces that last year drew more than 500,000 visitors for music and art events and avant-garde plays.
