One of my mentors last year summer of code project

An aside on flk's Views Scheduler module

Best thing about Summer of Code is connecting you with other Drupal programmers to be mentors.

This has no bearing on CMT but I wanted to post it somewhere!

Moms Rising

Add another to the list of great Drupal sites out there...

MomsRising.org

I'm rating by content/purpose here but the design is fine too!

FUD

Fear, Uncertainty, and Doubt is a highly unethical - and effective - marketing technique.

The usual set-up is that the facts argue against the dominant player, so it uses superior marketing power to ignore the facts and spread fear, uncertainty, and doubt about the superior competitor.

Don't be taken in.

FUD in the history of personal computers.

Also effectively used by governments in declaring war on countries that are no threat to their people.

Linus Torvalds on Networks of Trust

This is in no way verbatim [and words in brackets aren't even close]. This is a tangent some 10 minutes into Linus Torvalds' talk on Git:

I only need to trust 5, 10, 15 people

I know they're outstanding.

When Andrew sends me patches -- he doesn't actually use Git, some kind of defect -- [I know they are high quality patches, and can trust his decisions, even if I don't always agree]

And my 5 to 15 people have some other people they trust.

Mac OS X tool to convert HTML entities

Finally!

An HTML code to HTML entities "service"" for Mac OS X. And it's free.

It does lots more that I should probably understand and use...

Organization Structure

Home (News, client feed, most recent work, featu)
Portfolio

Taxonomy structure:

(Client) Projects
- Client1's Job B
- Client2's Job A
(but probably just the name of the project, not a formula like that)

And then a separate taxonomy, with something like this:

For Client
Public
Private

Or maybe more properly:

Workstep
Incidental documentation

The point is I'd like to attribute code improvements, new discoveries, etc. to the project we were working on when the issue came up (to make it easier to find again and to help us see how we spent our time) but the main view of a project should exclude such miscellaneous notes.

The Network is the Computer

Some cool thoughts:

The Network is the Computer, on the way we can give a better user interface to the Internet than web browsers.

I, and some others, have thought how cool it would be to have a desktop version of Drupal...

... combine that with some amazing distributed version controlled sort of database, where every location keeps a backup of every other location, and you have the ideal, indestructible, use-everywhere application.

Firefox has built-in search of visited sites' names

This piece of Agaric is blogging the obvious because I searched for a Firefox extension to search its history of visited sites.

Just go to History, and the last option: "Show in sidebar" to have access to the history searchbar.

However, there is one significant drawback to this history search: it only finds keywords in the title of sites visited, not the URL.

So we at Agaric still want more...

Media Democracy Day

It seems to me that the MDD site would be cool if it was more then just a basic info site on media democracy. What I'm thinking is maybe using same voting system you're developing for COA News/FSTV we could make the site kind of like a basic Digg.com but for just media democracy issues, with the center column all the stories that get a certain number of votes automatically.

-the site could remain the same, we would just add this on, and move the main page content elsewhere.

Edit links on Drupal teaser listings

Agaric wants edit links on Drupal teaser listings, possibly as a user-configurable option, and especially when the whole node shows up in the teaser.

Searched for this a while ago ("drupal edit links on teasers") and this page came up again!

It seems it is still needed.
