While discussing membership renew with the DA twitter account I had an idea: I'd love to have an annual renewal on my membership for the t-shirt offer that was added last year; however, rather than ending up with a dozen identical t-shirts, how about running an annual competition to have the forthcoming year's design?
The first question: was there plans to change the DA's official membership t-shirt each year?
The second question: time allowing, is this something the DA would be interested in?Read more

Have you got a great suggestion for a new and innovative way to use library data but maybe not the technical skills to bring that idea to life? Submit an idea for an application or data mashup to be eligible for this prize. Your idea might then be developed by someone else as an application or mashup as part of Libraryhack. For inspiration have a look at the list of data sets to be made available by the participating libraries and from February 8, submit an idea. You can enter as many times as you like.Read more
Check out this cool tool which allows you to compare your site to your competitor:
You can quickly compare inbound links, top inbound sites by host rank, and more.
This tool does a lot more than this but I just had to share.
This job posting is for the addition to a pre-existing Drupal site of a photo contest.
The client has already commissioned a photo contest which has been designed and developed as a mod for the Coppermine photo gallery.
This job is therefore an adaptation/migration of the existing photo contest to a Drupal environment. As such, the vast majority of the design/design elements/functionality has been created and/or mapped out.
The contest runs monthly.
Registered site users have two weeks to upload a picture. During this period photos are not visible.
Thought some of the clever people might be interested in partaking. Prize money looks nice as it is in $$$$$ :-)

Key modules include: Services, Feeds, JSON Server, Views, Location and more detailed in the case studyRead more
This came across the WebGrrls mailing list, and is probably of interest to Drupalers too.
(from the press release:)
The concept is simple: national teams compete against each other to build website in 24 hrs, putting national pride and web prowess to the test.
And the real winners of the competitions? The not-for-profit organisation who is presented with a stunning, fully functional website.
