While researching +Drupal media and asset management this morning, I found out about the Islandora project, which combines Drupal and Fedora Commons to create a robust digital asset management system. How cool is that? Gotta love the power of open source!

My "deep thought" topic for the weekend: as I work on increasingly larger websites, driven by increasingly complex teams with often-conflicting goals, I realize I need to become an expert in both Information Architecture and Content Strategy. I think I have good intuition, but I want to be able convert my hunches into words, actions, and convincing advice. My goal: to know enough to make convincing arguments that influence clients, bring all the stakeholders to concensus, and build their websites the right way. Where to begin?

I made my first documentation edit on! I had been banging my head trying to disable a rogue module in Drupal 7, finding that setting its status to 0 in the system table did not seem to work. I finally figured out that the system list was being cached! So I added the info about the cache_bootstrap table in Drupal 7, and making sure you clear the system list from that cache.

Updating documentation is ridiculously easy! I encourage everyone to do it whenever you find something that is inaccurate or incomplete.
