Query about inclusion of all-income Drupalers at DrupalCon Paris

[Sent via the contact form]

This question is about scholarship / support information for attendees. I note that such efforts do not have to be organized by the DrupalCon Paris organizers, but you will necessarily be a key point of coordination in any case.

Are you aware of any specific attempts at inclusion at DrupalCon Paris? In the European context this can especially mean reaching out to Drupalers in Africa, Asia, Middle East, India etc.

Being Agaric

You have to want to do amazing things with Drupal. You have to be dreaming big.

Forget Drupal (OK, not really). An Agaric has passion for doing what is right for the web, and for the collective, for the people of the world off the web, too.

Building a company is a lot of work; building a collective company may be harder. None of us want to knock ourselves out only so someone can make money. That's great but if that's your primary goal, there are lots of opportunities out there in Drupal right now.

Decisionmaking API & Consensus Module, and bringing more people into funding Drupal

Posted to the Drupal consultant list:

One thing that frustrates me as a consultant is that for funding easily available to aggregated small-money people using Drupal for web sites, we could more than match the invaluable corporate and foundation contributions– but as yet, the key part - aggregating needs and funds - has not happened.

I'd very much like to see Sam Boyer's Decision-making API funded and built (approved by the community but unfortunately not ultimately by the Knight Foundation).

We are going to write a Drupal book, so we have to plan important stuff, like the title

The hyperlinked form is a better representation

Age of Information:

Last name
First name
ID number
Troublemaker (Y/N)

Given way to age of the web-- connection to each other and links

His point was that we are

regardless of connection, how about "you can do what you want as long as it doesn't harm others" as basis of morality

Matt Westgate says:

Stop Selling Drupal and start selling:

Part of the pitch for Agaric training services

Dan says:

We learned web development while learning Drupal

so we haven't had to un-learn the non-Drupal ways of doing things.
