10,000 Drupal Modules!
Drupal now has over 10,000 modules! 10,000+ quick & easy add-ons to enhance the features of your Drupal setup. It is amazing how far the community has come. My position in the community is not necessarily a coder or a business consumer. Rather I am a manager of modules. I seek to learn about every single module & exactly how those modules work together. Instead of wasting time custom coding I assume that the features are already being developed by the community. If I find a similar feature, I will submit issues to enhance that feature to have the ideal composition. Long-term being a Manager of Modules is the ideal position to be in the community. Up until...Read more
Custom Formatters on Drupal.org
Within the last 12 hours I contacted the creator of the Custom Formatters module for Drupal trying to find out if there was a centralized place for Custom Formatters & I offered to make one if there wasn't. . Stuart informed me that there was not currently a place, and that he was too busy to build one. The idea of using Drupal.org was floated, but it doesn't have the level of filtering that we will need for this project. The goal of this project is to reduce repeated work among the Drupal community. Saving people time and making society more efficient. Custom Formatters is going to be one of the primary ways to display data on quite possibly the top feature-...Read more
How to kill cooperation Interpreting facts presented to you by others as opinions & not doing further research to solidify your point of view (or actively avoiding determining the best solution out of alternatives as identified by opportunity cost) Interpreting questions as accusatory statements, then responding to the fact that a perceived accusatory statement was made, instead of just answering the question I am tired of facts being labeled as “opinions.” I am tired of questions being turned into perceived accusative statements. Examples ("force" is implied through repetition) 1) ME: When do you want to work on XYZ? THEM: Why are you trying to force me to do...Read more
This is one of many upcoming blog posts which will analyze how the human mind works and why. Upon trying to establish various cooperative efforts, I have run into many road blocks. The road blocks are not coming from the ideas, they are coming from the people that are unwilling to accept or apply these ideas. Identifying WTF was wrong with these people (who had solutions to their problems lying in front of their face, yet they chose not to apply them) has become one of my primary focuses. I would rather avoid analyzing these problems, but I feel that they are far too wide spread to be ignored. If humanity at large does not get over these weaknesses, then our true...Read more
I wrote this back in 2008. It is one of many past unedited writings to come. Once again. Not much has changed. Some of it has become even more relevant with the times. Open Source CMS (Content Management Systems) will continue to grow in popularity, potentials of their advanced features, ease of creation and of use. The general public will catch on by 2010, and the power in society will be shifted to the people. Natural power from people empowering each other with Free Relevant Information will take hold of most aspects of society. These Open Source CMS will bring about a relative golden age of business transparency, c2c social collaboration and a much higher level...Read more
