Web 2.0 New York: Is sales always this much fun?

It's been a couple of weeks since Web 2.0 New York. The event was a success and early reports indicated it exceeded expectations for the event organizers.

For Acquia it was a successful event. We met over 214 people who were running Drupal sites and gave out Acquia t-shirts to each of them until we ran out. We gathered over 400 leads that we qualified as interested in or likely to be building a social publishing site. What was new for Acquia was that those leads were closely followed up by our inside sales team. I'll touch more on that at the end of this post.

Drupal and the $6000 hosting bill, getting to the truth quickly

It's political season here in the United States, and that means it's rumor time. Research has shown that if we are exposed to information as little as eight times we are more likely to believe it.

Talk is silver, code is gold: Acquia's code contributions to the Drupal project

In the Drupal community we have a saying talk is silver and code is gold. For over a year now, members of Acquia have been both talking and coding, and I think it's time to bring some of this to light. In future posts I'll also highlight Acquia involvemnet in Drupal code sprints and other Drupal events, but for now I'll just focus on code.

Drupalcamp LA keynote Saturday - redeye - Drupalcamp New York presentation Sunday

Wow, what a weekend.

I got up around 4:30AM Saturday morning to fly to Los Angeles. My new colleague Brenda Boggs, from the Acquia support team, was kind enough to pick me up at LAX on her way to Drupalcamp LA from San Diego.

Two weeks earlier I met with Crystal Williams, one of the co-organizers of Drupalcamp Los Angeles, in San Francisco. Drupalcamp LA was supposed to be around 200 people. However, it had blown up to 430 registered attendees. Crystal had asked me to present one of the keynotes and now I had to stare out at 400+ people before I had my second cup of coffee!
