    I wasn't able to make it last night but I have a hiring announcement. I'm looking for a developer for a local magazine. WordPress or Drupal (I know) theming experience a must. Module development, mySQL/PHP development, and MoveableType (no really, I know) development a big plus. Let me know if you or anyone you know might be interested.

    Also, as promised, slides are available here:

    Hi again, Thanks for letting me know about the space that has opened up, I appreciate it. I am not going to be able to make it though this month. I have had too much going on, and can't do it tonight. Will miss the presentation - but please give my place to someone else, and have a good meeting.

    I'm sad to miss this month. Nacin is always fun to listen to. As long as I can get some painkillers for my head after. #BlameNacin
