AirBnb for Drupalcon?

Hey everybody I'm trying to gauge interest in joining in an AirBnb for Drupalcon? I think Wylbur also has an AirBnb but I don't know if that one was for Drupalcon or not.

So far I've got 1 other person confirmed and 1 other person interested joining the AirBnb. Need to see if I can get 3 other people to join.

Otherwise I need to book a hotel room.

Overnight Website Challenge: calling all Drupal people

Last year was my first Overnight Website Challenge. I was skeptical, but I learned way more than I ever expected to. There's something special about learning by working with a team for a common goal. I got to experience how projects are run at the Nerdery by being on Chris' team, which helped discover new modules, new techniques, and overall improve how I run projects with Enjoy Creativity (and later Triplo).

That's why it's my pleasure to tell you about OWC this year. The Overnight Website Challenge is an event where teams of people like you build websites pro-bono for nonprofits from 9am on May 2nd until 9am on May 3rd. Joining a team would be a great experience for folks that want to join a crazy event and learn a lot about the process of making websites.

The sponsors provide food, drinks, desks, power, wifi during the entire 24 hour period. You just have to bring along your own essentials: laptop / desktop, monitor, keyboard, good luck charm, board games - whatever you need to survive the 24 hours or keep you going late at night. Not sure you can make it the whole night? There are even places to nap, quiet rooms, and even a place to get massage.

So far the Twin Cities has two teams focused on Drupal:

Drupal Security Updates - boilerplate explanation and justification documents

We are dealing with a new client right now, an agency that is working with a restaurant. The retaurant site has not been updated since 7.12! The agency is asking for some documentation to share with the client about the need for these updates.

I did a simple google search, and came up with no usable results! Maybe Drupal.org has some resources, but I have never seen anything like that there.

This would be a really valuable resource for everyone working with clients. I'm really surprised we as Drupal users are not sharing some of this.

Need website help

Hi, I am very new to Drupal. I recently had my site built in Drupal 7. I have a block set up so everytime I post to FaceBook it shows up automatically in that block.
I'm wondering if there is something that I can add to the Blog page so each time I post a blog it will automatically show up on my FaceBook page? Any help would be appreciated.

TCDrupal Non-Profit Decision

In December, we put off the decision on forming a non-profit until Jan - with the plan of making sure that everyone had a chance to talk about it - and that we gave sufficient advanced notice on the meeting for Jan. However, the discussion really didn't happen and I've done a really poor job of coordinating and publicizing the meeting.

In consulting with others - there are two opinions on how to move forward.
