I'm speaking at DrupalCon Los Angeles. 5pm, Tuesday 12 May in the 518 - Trellon room.

I first spoke about Constructive Conflict Resolution in Amsterdam at DrupalCon last year. I posted the slides, recording and speakers notes from that talk to the PreviousNext blog.

Over 1000 women gathered in the Hague in 1915

It's ANZAC day.

It's the 100 year anniversary of a particularly bad battle in Turkey, that has somehow come to represent the apex of Australian and NewZealand glorification of war. Sure, we say it's not glorifying war - but seriously how is this wall to wall coverage not glorification? The coverage in all media over the past week has numbed my senses. Not made me reflect on sacrifice.

All our focus on this one stupid battle? I'd like to put some focus on those efforts to stop the slaughter.

Gallipolli was ultimately a battle lost for the ANZACs.

PSA: If you are a web professional, work in a digital agency or build mobile apps, please read this article now: Taking the social model of disability online

Done? Great.

"The social model of disability reframes discussion of disability as a problem of the world, rather than of the individual. The stairs at the train station are the problem, rather than using a wheelchair."

The Great D8 Accelerate Chook Raffle (a silly chicken silhouette and the Drupal 8 logo)
UPDATE 21 March 2015: I cancelled the chook raffle in favour of a bigger better crowdfunding initiative by the whole board of the DrupalAssocation.

update: republishing with some notes from  Peter Wolanin , who has been working directly on the issues that caused me dive in here in the first place. Many thanks Peter for the clarifications and corrections!
