I’m talking about being existentially wrong, vis-a-vis turkey bacon. Turkey bacon is a hate crime. That’s not even a food. It’s mean to the turkey, it defiles the whole idea of bacon, and when Francis Scott Key freed this country from the slaves, I think that’s the kind of thing we need to keep in mind. We need to honor that vision by not… you just… Turn it away! I won’t have the turkey bacon!
I’m gonna have an almond. How you doing? Good week?
I just read The five year lag, a good post about church and technology by @wezlo. While this wasn’t his main point, a bit of what he said jumped out at me because it’s been on my mind this week. I had to move back a couple of paragraphs to find the connecting statement, because - honestly - I’d skimmed right past it.1 year ago • 1 note
I just finished taking the State of Drupal 2011 survey, and if you use Drupal in any way, you should, too. I thought I’d share some of my responses here, where I can also expand on them without getting too long-winded for a survey.
Drupal core provides stability. Drupal contrib provides agility. Core development should focus on building a well-written, reliable, secure platform with critical APIs that everyone can use. Contrib can extend core in many directions. Distributions, install profiles, and - more importantly - good cookbooks and tutorials can alleviate potential confusion about what contrib modules can work together to build great sites.1 year ago • 0 notes
The success of a website is often measured by how frequently users do what you want them to do. A lot of UX design effort goes into making it easy for them to do things right, but how often do we design so that users can do no wrong? This morning, I discovered that Kroger has applied this principle in a very effective way.2 years ago • 0 notes
