Inventing a job

From Tony Wagner, the Harvard education specialist..... “Today,” he said, “because knowledge is available on every Internet-connected device, what you know matters far less than what you can do with what you know. The capacity to innovate — the ability to solve problems creatively or bring new possibilities to life — and skills like critical thinking, communication and collaboration are far more important than academic knowledge.

What type of programmer is best for your project?

I snagged this article, "The Three Types of ‘Computer’ People",  from, Back of the Envelope.

Although it focuses on what type of programmer would make a good co-founder, I think it is not a too much of a stretch to ask, what type of programmer is best for your project? At some point in the project, there is room for each type of programmer to play a role.

Since I work mostly with open source software, I naturally consider myself a hacker.

The Drupal Distro for Publishers

OpenPublish

OpenPublish is a packaged distribution of Drupal, tailored to the needs of online publishers. First released about a year ago, it has quickly gained momentum. It already has hundreds of active installations, thousands of downloads, professional support from me and my crew as well as other Drupal shops. It is the obvious choice for news publishers who want to get a head-start on Drupal.
