Weekly Watercooler, R.I.P. MCA edition

May 4th, 2012

4K news this week:

  • We wrapped up our work on relaunching the Which MBA? section of Economist.com, which gives prospective MBA students access to blogs, school rankings, a forum (Organic Groups!), and webinars.
  • Diana is at DrupalCamp Stanford this week, sharing the Drupal love with newbies and pros alike.
  • Mark wrote an excellent tutorial on how to migrate your “old” HTML content into you shiny new Drupal site.
  • Elliott and Mike are joyfully refactoring the code behind DrupalPoetry.com which we launched in beta at DrupalCon Denver. Jared is also updating some of the UI, so with their powers combined, soon the site will be looking fresher and sporting some new features. Once we finish up a little more refactoring, we’ll make the code public on Github so you can create your own poetry website!
  • Chris and Ian are hard at work on building the new Pressflow.org site which will provide better information on how to use the distribution and where to find support.
  • Pressflow also got a shout out this week in Dries’ announcement of Spark — a new distro aspiring to be “the Pressflow of Drupal authoring experience”.
  • RoboChef (our IRC bot) can now provide us with helpful Austin tips via the #WhenInAustin Tumblr.
