Back in the day, many people had a job for life. Today, the average number of jobs a person might have in their lifetime is six. In future, trends suggest we'll have 6 jobs at once.

I resemble that remark. This year I've found myself saying I have 5 jobs. 1 for each day of the week.

Mainly, I run my own business, Creative Contingencies, and have done so since 1997. But I'm also

I can't believe the year is nearly over. It's been a strange one for me. No key themes. Well, not that I can see yet. Maybe I need more time.

But I did a lot of travelling. A lot. More than usual.

Two trips to New Zealand, Three to the US, One to Europe, and a few interstate hops too. And I've already got Three overseas trips pencilled in for next year. It's not good for the planet, but it's always mind opening to be in a different place, outside my "normal" operating parameters. I'm particularly looking forward to going to DrupalCon Asia in Mumbai in February.

Bootstrap 3 for Drupal

Open Source Software. Gotta love it.

I was fooling around with the second alpha release of the Bootstrap theme for Drupal8. I hit a snag, made a wish (by posting an issue to drupal.org) and Lo! and Behold! Not long after the wish was granted and a Beta was released.

If you're one of those people who uses Drupal to publish stuff online, and just want to get something up quickly without using Drupal's default Bartik theme, then you might want to take a look at Bootstrap.

I'm going to the Open Source Developer's Conference!

I'm running a workshop at the Open Source Developers Conference in Hobart soon. It made me realise it's been far too long since I wrote about inkscape, or did a screencast. But I use this amazing tool all the time.

OSDC didn't seem to have any speaker badges, so I copied the image from their twitter account, and added words in Inkscape. It's so easy - I'll do it now, and do a quick screencast while I'm at it!

OSDC is a really fun conference - I'm looking forward to sharing some Inkscape joy!
