Got threads? Online communities are among the most popular tools used on the net. However, these tools have had limited refinement over the last two decades and are now reaching their limit of utility, as volumes rise beyond the abilities of mere humans to keep up. This talk will demonstrate several technologies and concepts that show promise as ways to enhance online communities, making them easier to discover and making it easier to select high-quality content, evaluate that content, and...

Content administrators are the forgotten users of the internet. The user experience field focuses on delivering usable, compelling experiences for end users — but doesn't always consider what will be required from the people who maintain the site each day. Drupal developers sometimes forget that there are lots of people who use Drupal every day who don't know (and don't want to know) how Drupal works. In this session, we'll focus on understanding the needs of content administrators, and...

This is the first letter that Lisa Rein wrote to Chelsea Manning, on October 7, 2015. Full text of letter: October 7, 2015 Hi Chelsea, I hope this letter finds you well. That sounds a little ridiculous to say, under the circumstances. You've endured so much and come out such a shining symbol of all that is good in the world. I really mean that, and I think of you often. I sent you a card a few weeks ago, but I didn't want to complicate the sentiment of the card with the subject I'd like to talk...

When most people think about cloud computing (if they think about it at all), it usually takes one of two forms: Infrastructure Services, such as Amazon EC2 and GoGrid, which provide raw, elastic computing capacity in the form of virtual servers, and Platform Services, such as Google App Engine and Heroku, which provide preconfigured application stacks and specialized deployment tools. Several providers, however, offer access to large public datasets that would be impractical for most...
