Pantheon: The Freelancer’s Piece of Mind

The most difficult tasks for me as a web app/site developer has always been trying to balance development, hosting, maintenance, security, and the client’s budget. Last year I discovered Pantheon, a professional hosting platform for Drupal. Since then I have brought multiple client’s Drupal web applications and sites into the Pantheon fold with great success. With the addition of platform support and hosting for WordPress, I’m now starting to migrate clients who use WordPress from a server I host, maintain, and support over to Pantheon’s intensely gratifying structure.

Duckie and I have been busy it seems.

Well time sure flies when you’re having fun!

Tutorial Thursday: Remix Culture

Tutorial ThursdayGreetings everything, in a previous post I introduced the concept of the remix culture.  Something that think that will help out with understanding just what is going on is a movie called RiP: A remix manifesto.  The movie is included in the this post, and it is about 75 minutes long, but incredibly worth the watch. It has some heavy names in it, and as stated in yet another post, this is about understanding your rights to the Holiday that is the Internet. Though do keep in mind that this particular issue goes a lot further than simply music. The manifesto has four main points:

  1. Culture always builds on the past
  2. The past always tries to control the future
  3. Our future is becoming less free
  4. To build free societies you must limit the control of the past

Have a watch and give me your thoughts:
