From last week’s plans:
Attend Drupal Camp Toronto organizers’ meeting, figure out task delegation Everyone was happy with the sponsorship letter I drafted, and we’re working out a system for managing tasks.
Give lecture at York University – Schulich Business School on Enterprise 2.0 That was lots of fun! Recording is on my blog. More than 500 people have viewed this so far… wow! Current est. ROI: offline: 134%, online: 9900%, total 2631%.
Give talk on Totally Rocking Your Development Environment for the IBM Drupal Users Group That went really well, too! It was a sneak preview of my upcoming DrupalCon 2009 talk, and I learned that I somehow managed to pick up a bucketload of tips while working on various Drupal projects. I have way too much material to fit into the real talk, so this will be interesting.
Interview people for system administration project This has been going well. Turns out interviewing people is less scary than I thought it was! In fact, scheduling things was so painless that I’ll be interviewing a whole bunch of people for a potential part-time personal virtual assistant position too…
In addition, I:
- Finally got all the test cases to work again! Fighting bit rot and interactions is hard work!
- Had lunch with a bunch of interesting Web 2.0 folks at the Social Friday 2.0 lunch organized by Aaron Kim
- Delighted my project manager by referring him to the social media consulting tips for community tools that I’d developed in January last year
- Delighted various IBMers by referring them to my bookmarks for Enterprise 2.0 metrics and ROI, my presentations, and other cool things
- Survived a week of many meetings and presentations
- Figured out how to post picture-in-picture recordings of my presentations
- Am getting better at remembering to set up everything I need to record, and at having backup ways to capture my presentations
- Received the coat and books I’d ordered online
- Upgraded to the latest version of WordPress
- Had to have my iPod reflashed
- Baked some blueberry muffins
- Attended a geeky get-together at HackLab celebrating the 1234567890th epoch second.
- Chatted with a number of people about networking
- Explored systems like BatchBook, Relenta, and SugarCRM for web-based contact management; jury’s still out on this one
- Fully moved my calendar and mail over to Google Apps for my domain
- Got treated to daing na bangus from scratch by the ever so wonderful W-, who deboned the fish himself (!)
Happiness. =) (And Inbox Zero, for the most part!)
Over this weekend and next week, I plan to:
- Move Transition2 to the latest version of Drupal 5 and make sure all the test cases still run
- Start doing more integration testing, now that others have made progress on their parts
- Interview more candidates for sysad and virtual assistant positions
- Sew myself a circle skirt
- Experiment with a magazine-style WordPress theme
- Send books to my mom
