The fail whale may be going the way of the Dodo if you don’t retweat the message below.

The fancy pants engineers over at Twitter are “revamping their system to scale”. This cynical move toward business efficiency puts the fail whale species at risk of mass extinction. When Twitter was asked to comment on this, they had nothing to say for themselves. Nothing!

AutonomoDOTus Group Wants to Help Free Your Data - Webmonkey

“Of course that’s also the goal of groups like Chris Messina’s DiSo project and in this case Autonomo.us is a bit late to the game. Rather than spending their time on grandiose statements, the DiSo Project and others like are already distributing code that just works.”

Conference Organizing Distribution | groups.drupal.org

Conference Organizing Distribution | groups.drupal.org

In April, NASA CoLab released a Request For Proposal (RFP) for a Partnership Software which very explicitly requested the software to be built on an open source CMS, used for one particular use case, then packaged up and released as an installable application. We (Chapter Three LLC) recently won the contract with a Drupal solution, and our goal is to build an out-of-the-box “Drupal Product” that organizers can use to facilitate participatory conferences (ala Drupalcon, BarCamp etc.). The distro will support conference invitation, registration, session proposals + voting, note-taking, and forming post-conference working groups.
