End of the week notes

Well it's been a busy week work wise and Angry Beanie wise, over all I'm pretty happy with how things are going.

I'm currently working on making some changes to the Angry Beanie site. I've already added the three latest episodes as blocks on the front page featuring HTML5 players, but I'm also looking at rebuilding the Show and Episode pages. I'm just not happy with the layouts, too busy and not exactly attractive to look at.

Another For Science! out the door

Last night saw another episode of For Science! released.

We spoke about the child who appears to have been "functionally cured' of HIV, a new form of locomotion for robots, bacteria from Lake Vostok, Mars and cloning.

Some changes afoot

Starting on Monday I'm going to be joining the team at Catalyst IT Australia as a Drupal developer. This is going to be a full time position so there are going to be a few changes.

Firstly, this means that I'm going to be in Sydney 5 days a week, so if anyone wants to catch up for lunch then feel free to ping me :)

How does this marketing thing work?

One of the hardest things about putting together Angry Beanie isn't chasing interviews. Nor is it building the hosting infrastructure, or in fact resisting the urge to keep checking the downloads stats.

No, it's working out how to get more people to listen without appearing to be either:

Working things out

The last couple of months have been interesting for me.

I've had a couple of short contracts working with Drupal and Joomla and I have to say, I'm still very much a Drupal person. Joomla just doesn't seem to have the same polish, either in the core system or the module set around it. You may disagree but meh, everyone's different.

Something new at Angry Beanie

I've decided to try something new for me and run a weekly video thing on youtube.

Called Angry Beanie Rant, it's a 5-10 minute thing where I talk about some of the things that have annoyed me over the past week.

Here's the first episode:
