There's one kind of climate change that will benefit nearly all Canadians and that's the thawing of Federal Government attitudes towards free open source software (FOSS). The recent Ottawa Drupalcamp, which had about 200 enthusiastic attendees packing a University of Ottawa lecture hall, offered a visible indication that the melting process is picking up pace.

At Drupalcon 2009 I participated in a panel discussion about training. My contribution was to talk about documentation. This is summary of my notes. In the traditional Zen monastery, there were two notable techniques that the master would use to introduce the novice to enlightenment. The first was to have the novice sit for many hours facing a wall and concentrate on nothing but the breath. At the point where the novice was absorbed in this state of absolute peace and bliss, the master would creep up behind him and whack him on the head with a large bamboo pole.
