Hi looking to hire a webmaster for a Joomla 2.5 install and set up. [masked] in Culver City. I sell holistic health sessions by phone as a Medical Intuitive.

In your own words describe your familiarity with Joomla

I worked on a site with early 1.x but did not like it. Wordpress 3.x showed us the desired user experience but too unstable with all the plugins a site as complex as mine would need. I like Joomla is finding its place as the "more stable user-freindly CMS" Still looking forward to a site that makes access to 13 books and 100 articles easy for users and so they can comment

How do you use Web 2.0 in your work?

not enuf

Do you run a business using the web as an important component?

pretty much all online

What would have to happen, for you to characterize your membership with us as "worthwhile" ?

Meet people I can assist with what I've learned with ten years of sites and who can assist me with my issues. I attended two local Wordpress Meetups but found them dismal in terms of group process. What's needed is a semi-formal process so people can meet each other, meet their neighbors. With a big group you do this is groups of five. If time re-mix and all get into new groups of five. Learn who your allies are.

What's your favorite snack food or refreshing drink?

I prefer fresh veggies and dip

    Hi Bruce - It would be nice to save time to cover plugins, etc. but we're going to be pushing it to build a theme in 2 hours already. If there's interest, I'll schedule a Part 2 for this meetup where we'll take the theme further and cover plugins, etc.

    Hi Bruce.

    Regarding your Ubuntu/AMD64 issue I suggest going to joining the main mail list and posting your question. Someone should be able to help you out.

    Heart Centered Toastmasters

    Hi Bruce,

    Heart-centered Toastmasters is unique in that we have a non-denominatio­n spiritual club culture. While there are over 125 clubs in our TM district to choose from, there is only 1 other club that can offer the unconditionally­ loving vibe that HCTM offers (that other club would be Agape TM, my home club). I started HCTM to provide more speaking opportunity, as Agape is full to overflowing. It is true we are just beginning to build membership, and I'll work to better our marketing...

No one else gets these results. I am 100% pain free 100% of meds and I'm just one of many who she has given life back to over the past decade.

    Thanks for your suggestion Bruce. Our habits create our character. And NLP offers tools to change habits. Of course you decide which tools to use and which habits to change, haven't you?
