Business Idea: Restaurant/Diner Where Wait Staff Decide What You Need That Day

I think on the very high end this is done, where instead of picking anything you get a multicourse meal. (I may be wrong, i've never been to a place that fancy.) A diner or basic restaurant, though, where you don't get to make the choice, but the wait person or cook decides what it looks like you need, could have some

If only the indecisive could be counted on to decide to go anywhere...

Journalism is Communicating Facts as Stories

"Journalism is the work of communicating facts as stories. Facts do not compel people to action. Stories do. The ethical responsibility of journalists is to tell stories consistent with fact."

Questions for other Consulting Shops and Collectives and Freelancers

What kind of Drupal work do you most often do?

What kind of Drupal work do you most want to do?

Do you track your time?

If so, what tools do you use to track your time?

Do you track blatantly non-billable time such as reading Drupal Planet? If so, do you use the same system as for client/project work, and how do you categorize various non-work time?

Any conditions a client must meet for you to work with them?

What are your goals in life?

Do you see ways for your business to help you achieve these goals? If so, which ways?

Field labels should be number of items / plural aware

Ideal would be on the field settings, or possibly the field display settings, you can set what the singular and what the plural should be.

I don't think automatic adding of an s would work so well.

Point is you have a link field for entering web sites, it should say web site if there is one and web sites if there are multiple.

Use Drush to sync files from one site to another

Believe it or not, this is the function you want:

core-rsync (rsync) Rsync the Drupal tree to/from another server using ssh.

For example:

drush rsync @example.stage:%files @example.local:%files

Can't do remote to remote though.

Enabling and disabling modules based on environment

A drush command. Text file with modules to enable on dev, and then run it manually or somehow automatically.

drush? make text file with all the modules and git it to drush pm_enable

If we have a defined practice for environment-specific module enabling/disabling and i'd love to disable views_ui, update, etc. on live

It would be run after sync commands-- pull data from live, but then enable update on the test site, and all site building modules on dev

Staying Free: Contributing to Drupal and the World by Building Our Collaboration Infrastructure

Talk Description: *
[The talk will cover the concepts of the below, but shorter and better and more specific where it matters and the presenter will be better looking than and more articulate than i am in reality, too.]

Our software is free.

We are free.

Both are in part because we are craftspeople who can be compensated quite well. We have remarkable control over our work, and we have time to put into building Free Software and the community around it.

This fortune and freedom is historically crushed out of every trade.
