Drupal is standing on a huge pile of midgetsAll content management systems suck, Drupal just happens to suck less.Popular open source software is more secure than unpopular open source software, because insecure software becomes unpopular fast.

Migrate in core works. Yesterday, after our weekly call (I am so thankful for eliza411 for organizing these calls, they are absolutely invaluable) a clear roadmap have emerged and I have written a rudimentary but functional drush command to run our migrations. Then I pointed it to a Drupal 6 database... and it worked. Just like that. Today penyaskito has finished the aggregator feed migration that eliza411 and mpgeek started and also written the aggregator item migration. These also work. We are basically done with the configuration migration and these are the first two content entities to work. Test instructions are posted for the curious. Despite every migration is integration tested and most sources (and some destinations too) are unit tested there is a limit to what we can test: for example, we check that the contents of the variable we believe in D6 contained the site slogan ends up where we think it should end up in Drupal 8 but there's no real way to check that the slogan that appeared in D6 really appears in D8 short of someone running the d6_system_site migration and checking this fact.

Having a clear understanding of the organization’s strategic objectives helps innovation leaders conceptualize ideas. In order to get employees to think strategically, the key is not to demand business value thinking at the beginning of the idea process. Rather, encouraging absurd and irrelevant ideas irrespective of a dollar value can allow you to find the next big innovation your company wants. Those ideas can be lurking anywhere; city officials in Paris, for example looked for an innovative and ecological idea to save money and decided to use a resource they already had: sheep.
