What is it? Central Florida has several thriving, yet disjointed communities. There are groups of software developers, filmmakers, designers, entrepreneurs and an array of other creative individuals. We're inviting the leaders and members of these communities to join us for a brainstorming meetup on how to build an even stronger, more vibrant community of DOERS. This is a FREE EVENT and open to any and all who would like to participate in building a better community. Why? We have all of the pieces and parts of a strong and vibrant tech & creative community, but somehow we're not quite living up to our full potential.

I don't know if Collin just talks like that, or if he's affected, but he does have a cool project.

Give Your Creative Projects a Kickstart

I heard about Kickstarter on a podcast interview with board member and contributor Andy Baio recently, and I am blogging about it as soon as I could. It's a way to get micro-investors for just about any project you would like to carry out, but can't afford to. Andy's project is to create an 8-bit tribute to Miles Davis called "Kind of Bloop".

Wiki Help Needed

0 BookmarksLog in to bookmark

Dear anyone:

We need a little help with the Wiki - I have all the posts moved over, but there are two tasks yet remaining.

  1. Copying the timestamps from the old wiki posts' creation dates to the new ones. Call me detail-oriented, but I'd like to see that happen.
  2. Creating an .htaccess file in the old wiki subdomain with a bunch of 'redirect permanent' lines to all the new wiki pages. This is a simple yet tedious task. If you'd like FTP access, email me via the sitewide contact form.
