Arizona Day 1

Dad and I drove up to Sedona yesterday, then on up Oak Creek Canyon.

How's the weather in Boston?

I'm pleased to announce that I am joining Moshe Weitzman in Cyrve. Our specialty is content migration and transformation - the grunge work of fitting old information into new holes.

Past projects of mine

XML -> Mobile-compliant XHTML

I produced a mobile-compatible website for delivering 2008 U.S. Presidential election results to hand-held devices. This involved modifying the Drupal FeedAPI module (at that time still in beta) to read custom fields in addition to standard RSS fields (patch submitted).

As a follow-up project, in two days I created a system to take XML feeds of raw election data and produce mobile-compatible XHTML pages to present the results, for live updates on Super Tuesday. This system included a templating system so the client could easily style it to their own needs (they reported it took half an hour with my delivered system to complete the theming and customization), and has remained in operation through subsequent primary elections.

Drupal update

Did a good day's work, between the soon-to-be-updated Christ Church Unity site and token module debugging. That'll be the last significant Drupal work until after Drupalcon, however, as I'll be heading off to sunny Arizona on Wednesday...


Mango Blue

It's about time for a non-Drupal post... Last night Sarah and I went to the Regattabar with our friends Kel & Pat, to see Mango Blue. We enjoyed the band very much - a great, energetic blend of Latin styles. Everyone in band - drums, timbales, congas, percussion, keyboard, two saxes, and bassist and lead singer Alex Alvear - did a great job (as did Alex's son, a Berklee student, sitting in on bass for one tune).
