about me

Donna Benjamin

Donna Benjamin aka kattekrab - photo by Stewart Smith on FlickrKatteKrab is my online handle, or nick. It means Catscratch in Dutch. What's a handle or nick?

I'm Director of Community Engagement at PreviousNext, Australia's Premium Drupal Agency. Before that, I ran a small business called Creative Contingencies for 17 years and maintain a brief bio page on the website.

This blog is a mish mash of things. It's not a daily diary. It contains things I'm working on, things I'm thinking about, things that bother me, things that excite me. If I'm compelled to write, it will probably go here.

I've written a few articles in various places at various times, and have copied some of those to this site, when their previous online homes vanished.

You'll also find me on twitter,, and openclipart.
