Since joining the Drupal community in 2006, the open-source advocate has become a prominent presence: traveling the world to speak at events (from local high schools to international conferences); leading a group of codehead volunteers in logging all things Drupal; and, in 2009, snagging a Knight Foundation grant to improve Drupal documentation.
Amid the gyrations of the stock market, and predictions of a severe
economic downturn, I have found myself in the interesting position of
launching a start up with my friends at Lullabot and Bond Art +
Science. Over the past six years, I've worked within the comfortable
fold of two well known brands in the media world: Inc. and Fast
Company, the last four years as president of a digital division with
six websites, 40 employees and more than $10 million in revenue.
Gone are the days of paper here at the offices of FastCompany.com. Virtually all in-house office communication is done electronically. E-mail is a given, as is teleconferencing. But what our office does, along with an increasing number of other streamlining-minded businesses, is employ wikis extensively.
