Our site needs a Drupal developer to make things happen in a big way. We're in the publishing business. Our site is pretty successful. It creaks at the hinges, and the body needs work, but otherwise, it's stood up to the punches pretty good. We're adding a few new sites, too.
-Extensive knowledge of Drupal 6
-Drupal module development & customization
-eCommerce, ad serving
Ability to meet weekly in Santa Monica offices.
I'm thinking of renting 150m2 warehouse space in Melbourne, and will be inspecting the space tomorrow. My idea is to create a creative work/play venue for web-dev (especially Drupal) and multimedia freelancers. We can work independently, as many of us already do, or collaborate on larger projects. I would also like to set up a basketball hoop and ping-pong table, maybe some beanbags. The rent is very cheap. If you think you might be interested, please let me know ASAP as this will help me decide. Ph/txt 0405478912

So I agree for the most part with the idea that we don't necessarily need an install profile so much as a bunch of documentation on how to set-up a Drupal based IMC.
I'm not sure if this would be super helpful for the IMC's that have next to no tech related help, but at least if we had a set of default procedures and workflows we could utilize this in order to set-up a site for them without having to spend a lot of time deliberating over the best way to do something within drupal.Read more
Culturecatch.com is a leading arts podcasting show on iTunes. In three years, we have created 160 x 30 minute audio and video shows with seminal artists in music, film, literature, and art.
We are seeking to do a new site design long period of time. As a start-up, we can't afford the expense of overhauling all at once. The current site is up to the latest version of Drupal.
The ideal developer is someone with a good design sense and strong background in multi-media sites.

The Media Code Sprint is underway! Here's a cross-post from my blog detailing the goals of this sprint, which runs through Saturday. We need your help!
Andrew Morton (drewish), Darrel O'Pry (dopry, remotely), and I are heading up a Media Code Sprint in Portland this week! Come help, in person or remotely, if you're interested in multimedia and Drupal! It has now officially started, and as I've volunteered to help keep folks updated, here goes...
First the reasons.
Number One: Better Media Handling in Core
Dries conducted a survey prior to his State of Drupal presentation at Boston Drupalcon 2008, and number one on the top ten (or 11) list of what would make THE KILLER DRUPAL 7 Release was "Better media handling".
Let me repeat that. Better media handling.
People have done really amazing stuff in contrib, but it is difficult (if not impossible in many cases) for developers to coordinate the use of files, as there is no good means for file handling in the core of Drupal. Thus, we have several dozen (or more) media modules doing some small part, or even duplicating functionality, sometimes out of necessity.
We need (better) media and file handling in Drupal core. In particular, there has been a patch for a hook_file in the queue for over a year, which has been in the Patch Spotlight (for the second time, no less) since May! (And has been RTBC several times during that process...) Come on folks.
One of the powers of Drupal is its system of hooks. We have hooks to modify nodes, to notify changes to user objects, to alter nearly any data (such as forms and menus). Noticeably absent is a consistent handling for files or any sort of notification. We need hook_file.
So goal Number One: get media handling in core. The means? Add hook_file and make files into a 1st class Drupal object. We'll be creating a test suite for functionality in the hook_file patch to validate it and "grease the wheels" to get it committed.
The other goals of this sprint pale in comparison to the first in utility, but are still highly desirable and worthwhile.
