(This page should be viewed more as an internal wiki page subject to frequent edits, rather than as a blog post)

Triplo is currently working on a project that involves groups. We're researching our options and this blog post is really more of a shared scratch pad on the resources we are finding and the lessons we are learning.

Our primary options seem to be:

Open Source (& Drupal) as a Political Act

Tue. Mar 21, 2017

I’m thrilled to announce, that I’ll be back at Midcamp this year for the 4th year in a row. This year, I’ll be giving a presentation on “Drupal as a Political Act.” The previous week, on March 25th, I’m giving a similarly titled presentation on “Open Source as a Political Act” at Minnebar in Bloomington, MN.

An observant person might notice a theme between the two presentations.

Here is the description of the session for Midcamp:

As an open source project, there is something inherently political about participation in the Drupal... more

I spent much of the prior decade (~1998 - 2009) immersed in the field of civic engagement, public participation, and deliberative democracy. Unfortunately, I was never quite able to figure out how to make a living at this.

We're looking for space to work/hangout

Tue. May 24, 2016

Triplo is just over two years old and throughout our our formative years, we’ve never had any kind of formal office or space that we could rely on. We’ve worked/met in the meeting room of David Needham’s apartment building, co-worked in a local tap room (during their off-hours), met in libraries, done some work while riding on the light rail, met in Wilbur’s living room, and frequently made ourselves at home on the second floor of the Goat Coffeehouse (East... more
