Mike Anello tells us what he’s learned after 8 years of the DrupalEasy podcast, the value of community training, and how he relaxes away from the screen.
EDIT: Yes, Nathan Rabin coined “Manic Pixie Dream Girl” in the first part of his series “My Year of Flops,” which was Elizebethtown.
“[Kirsten] Dunst embodies a character type I like to call The Manic Pixie Dream Girl (see Natalie Portman in Garden State for another prime example). The Manic Pixie Dream Girl exists solely in the fevered imaginations of sensitive writer-directors to teach broodingly soulful young men to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures. The Manic Pixie Dream Girl is an all-or-nothing-proposition. Audiences either want to marry her instantly (despite The Manic Pixie Dream Girl being, you know, a fictional character) or they want to commit grievous bodily harm against them and their immediate family”

Friday lunchtime lecture: When governments open up, who manages their data?
Friday 19 September 2014,
The Open Data Institute, 65 Clifton Street, London, EC2A 4JE
You bring your lunch, we provide tea & coffee, an interesting talk, and enough time to get back to your desk.
Governments hold a lot of data. A huge amount of data. And many are beginning to open it up for citizens and businesses to monitor and improve all sorts of things – from education and public services to crime rates and traffic. But all this data has to be stored, managed and presented in ways people can understand.
CKAN is a data management platform used by governments and organisations around the world to handle these important functions. Irina Bolychevsky gave a live demonstration of its data management workflows, visualisation and discovery features that help make data easy to upload, access and re-use.
Irina Bolychevsky is the Commercial Director of Open Knowledge and the former CKAN Product Owner

Darren has helped create www.RSchool.us, a starfishy collection of one-room school houses, currently with two locations in Central Florida.
