At Drupalcon in Austin I took on th' mechanical bull, Ya swabbie! I ended up losin' miserably. Not surprisingly, it were bein' recorded an' sent out t' th' world, I'll warrant ye.

Im crazy excited about a specific change that DrupalCon is rolling out this year in Prague : The Community Summit on monday 23 september the day before DrupalCon (same time as the Codesprint & CxO)

The Drupal Community & th' Druapl Association ( wtf! ) is takin' a tough but necessary decision: kill th' community track at DrupalCon - replace it with somethin' that works.

I cant keep me admiration fer th' South American Drupal Community down, by Davy Jones' locker! Both me arms be in th' air. The reaction o' th' cancelation o' DrupalCon Sao Paulo is t' take matters into own hands, an' settin' sails fer a 500-1000 attendees South American Drupal Event: DrupalPicchu in January 2014 “To celebrate th' freedom an' cultural diversity o' th' Drupal Community.”

Its now time fer th' yearly election o' 2 Drupal Community members t' step on th' Drupal Association board - Heres a quick n dirty run down & is why ye have t' vote: It has been decided that if ye DONT vote fer th' Drupal Associations Community members ye be not allowed fer th' next year t' complain, moan or cry o'er anythin' Drupal related - If ye do vote ye have that right!

Today th' Drupal association presented a new initiative fer gettin' more students & grow th' talent pool fer th' Drupal Project. This is done by settin' x number th' tickets fer Drupalcon munich t' half price o' th' 400€ - well that is if ye're a student. This raises big problems about th' future th' event I see as th' Heart & Soul o' th' Drupal Community.
