No meeting on 1/25, further discussion at the next Happy Hour

It's a good time for a check-in: there's talk of combining the JAM with the monthly meetup. I think it's a good idea to reduce the overall number of commitments that an active community member makes, but I also think it's important to ensure that new users always have a place to go. Now is a great time to focus on keeping up the good things that the TC Drupal community is doing well, without losing sight of attracting new participation.

Drupal for Good - Twin Cities Style

As many of you are aware, our friend and colleague Matthew Tift has been writing a lot about the Drupal Community and most recently, Drupal as a Political Act.

He has also been having discussions with a number of people about re-emphasizing the idea of Drupal as a social good and encouraging more thought on how the Drupal community is doing things to make the world a better place. I've had a couple of such discussions with him and he's inspired me to think more about these topics.
