Looking to move to Drupal 8 for Angry Beanie.

Ever since Drupal 8 dropped (I honestly thought it wasn't going to drop until at least late 2016) I've been looking for a project to test it out. I could move this blog over to it, but I was thinking a bit more adventurously and thought I could have a look at setting up a seperate site for the For Science! show.


Slight problem.

While core Drupal 8 appears to be solid, the third party module set, especially those that deal with media handling seem to be well behind in terms of development.

So my time with the Sydney Institute of TAFE has come to an end, meaning that I am now available for parties and weddings.

In MobileFOSS news, I'm going to be putting up the first draft of the schedule later on today. You'll notice a few blank spots, they're waiting to be filled by people with awesome mobile talks. Is that you?

Angry Beanie Radio, now almost like a real radio station

A while back I wrote up a description of the streaming setup that I was building for Angry Beanie Radio. It was designed so that I could play both pre-recorded and live content, including live interviews conducted via Skype. However it lacked a bit when it came to the ability to run a "real radio station". By real of course I mean the ability to have a continuous stream running, edit playlists on the run and mix live shows with pre-recorded content (switching between two different streams).

Forgot to post about the Angry Beanie Rant at the beginning of the week, so here it is:

"Politicians do the same old dance on asylum seekers, the Queensland LNP "review" civil unions into the dirt, US Teacher goes full Klingon and the US Olympic ctte takes on the yarnists of the world"

Also, a bit of a Collaborynth Update. My time with the Local Government and Shires Associations NSW are coming to an end, written more here:

Just as 3D printing is changing the way we look at manufacturing, it's changing the way medicine approaches different problems.

In this episode I talk to Scott Summit from Bespoke Innovations about the work his company does  with artificial limbs and I have a look at some of the other ways that 3D Printing is changing the way the medical world turns.
