Change the Locks

When I worked at Sherwin Williams, they had a policy: Any time a key holder left a store, you immediately changed the locks, even if the person was still working for the company. This may seem to be over-cautious, but it actually protected the company and the employee. In IT, I have continued to use the analogy of "change the locks" in many scenarios.

Drupal Camp Western MA

I'm on the intertubes!

Recently, I made two presentations at the Western MA Drupal Camp. One presentation was for people new to Drupal and the other was a very advanced look at the framework for database administrators. I have posted my slides on the camp website. Also, the first presentation was streamed live and is available for viewing. Feel free to take a look at the links below.

Mambo and "sex"
