The Ada Initiative

Mary Gardiner and Valerie Aurora have launched The Ada Initiative.

They really want to tackle the under representation of women in open technology and culture and the want to do it full time.

I was honoured they asked me to join the advisory board, and utterly humbled when I saw the list of other women on the board. It's an extraordinary crew of talented, accomplished women. Do I really belong there? Or is that just my imposter syndrome at work?

Drupal Australia - aussie drupalnuts[cross posted from cc.com.au]

In 2007 we made the decision to switch to Drupal from our own collection of in-house LAMP based web content management modules and we've not looked back.  Whilst we've been active members of the Australian Linux and Open Source community for over five years, we are still relatively recent immigrants to the Drupal community.

I've created a new identity for the drupal mob downunder to hang on our page at groups.drupal.org/australia

Inspired by the iconic work of May Gibbs, an Australian children's book author and illustrator, I bring you, the Aussie DrupalNuts.

We're also sponsoring DrupalDownunder - and I'm very much looking forward to it. I'm also wondering what kind of session I should submit to the call for proposals.

Too busy in my mind today to get any good work done.
I read and I sigh.
I click and I ponder why.
I start on something then on something else again.
Nothing is achieved.
No sense of satisfaction rises.
Thoughts waft like whisps of smoke from topic to topic.
Anger foments, empathy saddens.
Righteous indignation erupts.
Apathy wins.
Nothing is done.
Nothing is won.
