The addition of preprocessor functions to Drupal 6 makes customizing template variables straightforward and clean (bravo to everyone who made this happen!). Have you ever wondered where the variables come from? It's actually helpful knowing, even if you're a themer with basic PHP knowledge.
Some reasons why:

Crowdsourcing: A term commonly used to describe mass collaboration via social media tools.
The unwashed masses coming together to solve a business problem? Interesting theory but could it work in practice? The answer seems to be yes.

Last November Vancouver's social media star Rebecca Bollwitt spoke on Building Your Personal Brand to a very full house at the November 2008 meeting of Third Tuesday Vancouver. I was pleased that Third Tuesday Vancouver's host Tanya and Rebecca gave me permission to tape it. Although the video is very dark, the sound is good and Rebecca did a great presentation.

Views 2 provides a well structured theming environment allowing presentation control for each element of your view. And in my humble opinion, it rocks!
Those with no past experience with Views 1 will find Views 2 uses standard PHPTemplate theming techniques. All of your experience theming Drupal can be used with Views.

Registion for Podcasters Across Borders 2009 is off to an early start: PAB2009 early registration now open! It's being held June 19-21 in Kingston, Ontario.
PAB is an east coast podcaster's conference with an emphasis on community. It's organized by the personalities behind the Canadian Podcast Buffet, Bob Goyetche and Mark Blevis.
Back in September I blogged about Podcasters Across Borders (PAB) 2008. I wanted to go but let the opportunity pass. After listening to the 2008 sessions I vowed I would go in 2009. With all the economic uncertainty I'm back to thinking very hard about it, though still more for than against.
Anyone else from the Vancouver area thinking of going?

Drupal Camp Victoria seems long past but it was only six week ago we descended on North Studio for some Drupal geekery and general fun. Ever the video nut, I caught a handful of sessions on camera. In this session, Indispensable Modules, Rene Hache of North Studio gives an excellent run down of the Drupal modules North Studio finds, well, indispensable. He also provided presentation notes: Modules We Can't Live Without.
