What even is "Site Building"?
At DrupalDownunder some years back, the wonderful Erica Bramham named her talk "All node, no code". Nodes were the fundamental building blocks in Drupal, they were like single drops of content. These days though, it's all about entities.
The Drupal community working group exists to uphold our code of conduct, and work on the supporting policies and procedures we need to do that. Read more about it in the Governance group on Groups.drupal.org

I'm running for election as an "At Large" board member of the Drupal Association.
"Meet the candidates" forums were scheduled so members of the Drupal community could ask questions of the nominees. We were all asked to do a brief introduction, then respond to questions either by voice, or by IRC, and then were all asked to make a final statement.
Rather than adding to the already lengthy wiki summary of the candidate meetings, I'm posting the edited version of my responses here instead. See the full IRC transcript, and others summaries here:
My formal candidate statement is here:

Playing about with Storify for the first time as a way of shaping the post event report for Drupal Downunder. It claims to have an export to Drupal site feature (or tumblr, or wordpress, or posterous or mailchimp) but I couldn't get that to work. Instead - I've used the embed code. On balance, I'd say Storify is a pretty nifty web app.
This post is very long, mostly cos it has lots of pix, embedded vids of each of the the keynotes and is interspersed with tweets and other snippets about the conference. Hopefully, it gives a taste of the event and the fun that was had.
