I gave a talk a couple of years ago called Tools for Talking.
I'm preparing a new talk, which, in some ways, is a sequel to this one. As part of that prep, I thought it might be useful to write some short summaries of each of the tools outlined here, with links to resources on them.
Join 'em, support 'em, donate, promote... whatever. They all do good work. Really good work. And we should all support them as much as we can. Help me, help them, by following them, amplifying their voices, donating or even better?Joining them! And if all you've got is gratitude for the work they do, then drop 'em a line and just say a simple thank you :)

I resemble that remark. This year I've found myself saying I have 5 jobs. 1 for each day of the week.
Mainly, I run my own business, Creative Contingencies, and have done so since 1997. But I'm also
I can't believe the year is nearly over. It's been a strange one for me. No key themes. Well, not that I can see yet. Maybe I need more time.
But I did a lot of travelling. A lot. More than usual.
Two trips to New Zealand, Three to the US, One to Europe, and a few interstate hops too. And I've already got Three overseas trips pencilled in for next year. It's not good for the planet, but it's always mind opening to be in a different place, outside my "normal" operating parameters. I'm particularly looking forward to going to DrupalCon Asia in Mumbai in February.
