When life gives you bad role models, make rolemodelade.
We learn so much in life from the mistakes of others. Can a best practice really be identified until a worst practice comes along that makes us laugh and cry?Read more
Many publishers and media companies have shifted their Websites to Drupal. This DrupalCampNYC8 session explores why this is the case by examining current and future trends. We will present several case studies and host an open discussion about workflow tools, popular contributed modules, mobile publishing, and techniques for monetizing content, all of which are helping publishers rethink their businesses. From workflow management, multiplatform publishing, and subscription payments, to video integration, social media integration, and user generated content, this session will focus on how publishers and media companies are using Drupal to invite wider audience participation and ultimately improving their bottom line.
In this presentation I'll discuss (possibly with co-presenters) the process of going from an independent contractor to a Drupal development shop, and specifically some of the problems I/we have gone through in building Zivtech from 1 to 13 people over the past 2.5 years.Read more

WordPress gets some very important things right, and their hold on this market is proof. There are 11.4 million active installations of WordPress software, compared to only hundreds of thousands of Drupal installations. We need to get our act together, raise our standards, and lower the barrier to entry.
Come join me in talking about what this community needs to do to ensure its survival. What should we really be focusing on in Drupal Core for D8? What should you do with your own modules to prevent our CMS from being abandoned in favor of something else?Read more
The Drupal Association is trying to figure out the best way it can help DrupalCamp organizers. To that end, we've create a quick survey for DrupalCamp organizers to help the association determine how DrupalCamps are currently organized and managed.Read more

Here is my stab at an ordered agenda. Edits welcome:
1. Dates: Do we have them. If not, do our current preferences for "one of the weekends after July 4th weekend" still hold.
- Decide what we want to offer and how much it will cost
- I believe we have most of this already. If so Ezra can you make sure to have that up to date as much as possible (or maybe Tom)?
- Decide on what sources of funding we want and what is our target for each
- What tool do we use?
DrupalCamp Philadelphia (aka Drupaldelphia) is just a couple weeks away. We've landed a new venue for the event this year at Temple University's new state-of-the-art facility Alter Hall, http://www.drupaldelphia.com/location-drupal-camp-2010. With Drupaldelphia happening so soon after DrupalCon registration for this event has been slow which means we have a lot of space available. We've decided to invite our neighboring Drupal groups to join us http://www.drupaldelphia.com/registration.
Registration is only $20 which includes lunch.Read more
At the last Meet-up I inquired as to if there was a DrupalCamp NYC being planned. It appeared there was nothing on the table. Are there any new developements?
