Greg Dunlap on structure and power in the Drupal community

Fri, 10/31/2014 - 11:13 -- rprice

just be the people who build Drupal and let the rest go by the wayside? We have spent the vast majority of our time together largely operating under that last banner, but that doesn’t mean that we have no shared values. It just means that they largely go unstated. Which is funny because I think if I were to take a poll of the people reading this, we’d find that on a lot of these social and organizational issues our heads are pretty well aligned. Here are some examples. Do you think the diversity of our community is important?

Patriot Gardens | Plant a Seed, Change the Law

Tue, 02/26/2013 - 09:39 -- rprice

We grow dozens of vegetables organically in our front yard in Orlando (read more about why we planted our Patriot Garden). But in November, the city—which aspires to be the “Greenest City in America”—notified us that our harmless garden violates city code, and we have to tear it up and replace it with grass…or face fines of $500 a day. All we want to do is use our property peacefully to grow our own food. The Constitution protects our property rights from arbitrary invasions like this. Help us tell our leaders “Hands off our food!” by planting your own Patriot Garden in your front yard.

A fascinating view, much different from the maps you saw that night, which showed an artificial, binary divide. But these maps demonstrate that there is not such a huge gap between rural and urban America.

Conversation about Orlando Tech Association

Mon, 04/07/2008 - 15:17 -- rprice

...is happening right now over on Robert Dempsey's blog - he gave some highlights from the weekend at BarCamp and some of the many events and discussions around the idea of forming a technology association in Central/all of Florida.

I obviously had something to say, and I think this conversation is headed in a healthy direction. If you want to get involved, please check out Robert's blog and the subsequent comments.

Here are my words:
