Welcome! Thanks for visiting my little corner of our emerging Web!
I'm a web developer (expert in the popular Drupal Content Management System) living in Eugene, OR, looking for a few good clients and co-conspirators.
For clients, I bring years of building Drupal-based cutting edge web sites for non-profits and small businesses and decades of design experience, with deep knowledge of the social web (Web2.0, FaceBook, Twitter, YouTube, RSS syndication etc.) from my work with Thingfo.com, who have worked with Yahoo!, NBA, FOX, and NBC. If you're in Eugene and ready to bring your web presence up do date or just need someone to update your site every once in a while, I'm ready to help.
For collaborators, I bring a powerful toolset and sharp mind that's ready for some juicy projects. As a web designer, marketer and writer I'm looking for hungry creative people in Eugene who want to do business ethically and succesfully! Artists, designers, coders, artisans, producers, makers, entrepreneurs... I'm available to consult or, if the idea's exciting, invest myself! Let's get some balls rolling!
Drupal and the Social Web work together to move projects past having just having a Website and towards having a Web Presence, from being a page to being a node, from being a voice in the wilderness towards being a part of the great conversation. Drupal, solid, infinitely expandable, and quickly becoming an international standard, will provide the infrastructure for anything we want to do online, from publicizing your event to selling your services. Every site I make includes analytics, syndication, sharing, and simple, what-you-see-is-what-you-get content creation and editing on the page. Easy to use with a maneagable curve up into power user, thousands of active contributors keep Drupal secure and current so you'll never need to start from scratch online again. Drupal has already changed the Web, and whether we work together through a contract or towards a business plan, I'm excited to ride that change with you.
Let's Build Something,
I've worked with many open source projects over the years, including Firefox, Drupal, and Linux, and the best ones always have a thriving community supporting them. These people don't just include the brick-and-mortar-and-magic-dust programmers but varying degrees of less-technical folks. From those who point the way passed initial difficulties in the noob forums to web designers polishing up the often, um, utilitarian websites coders tend to produce more as an afterthought than the project's face to the world, a diverse group of dedicated folks enable the best open projects to thrive.
"Globally," he said, "less than 3 percent of the world's coastal waters can produce seaweed capable of replacing over 60 billion gallons of fossil fuels."
I'm fascinated by algae as a source for biofuels, and according to this article there's been a major breakthrough in processing the "macro" algae using good stuff like e-coli to "digest" the stubbornly resistant to breakdown kelp.
If any algae-based biofuel company needs a Drupal expert or just someone to help with sales and marketing, there's a contact form in the upper left there!
I am a giant huge Reddit nerd thank you. You should be too. I hope to show you some good reasons why with this little exploration of its depths.
So, Reddit: the best thing to happen to news since, jesus, indymedia, and not just news but this new insta-share collective-subconscious flux machine that the webs and their ephemera have created that "news" used to be.
