"Dan, Laurence: thank you both for the feedback. To clarify: I'm not at all interested in hosting Drupal or anything else myself. Given Dan's praise of Ning, I think I should at least give their trial a shot. Thanks again!"

"Aloha e Joe. I would recommend Ning or SocialGo. I agree with Laurence that self hosting Drupal is probably not the best option for an organization like yours. Ning has actually gotten _a lot_ better since they no longer have to deal with millions…"

"If you're looking for seamless SaaS hosting, SocialGo may be worth looking into. It's relatively inexpensive, and it's not such a fuster-clucked back-end platform like Ning is. Both are relatively easy turn-key solutions, 'just…"

Social media hosting for a non-profit

Aloha fellow geeks -I'm looking for information about and experiences with hosted "social media platforms" (for lack of a better phrase).  My daughter's school is looking for something in this regard, and while I think the requirements are fairly flexible, the essential thing is the ability to define groups and to distribute messages to group members.  Some sort of calendaring (at the group level, and globally) would probably be useful.  I'm not sure at this point whether member blogs are…See More

"I have written actual software in Scheme. One of my favorite technical manuals is the manual for the "Scheme Shell", written (the language and the manual) by Olin Shivers. Never used Haskell & Co., but like other language geeks I enjoy…"

"Kimo -- I believe they are using Fedora as the repository. I imagine if you contacted the law school they'd be able to get you in touch with the folks behind the project."

Joe Dane commented on Joe Dane's blog post Open Source legislation?
"Thanks for these comments. On re-reading my post, I think I should have framed the question differently. It's safest to assume that there's no funding at all. In fact, better to think of this as a hypothetical. You are the leader of the…"

Laurence A. Lee commented on Joe Dane's blog post Open Source legislation?
"Joe, It sounds like what you're really looking for a "Decision Service", or more commonly called a "Rules Engine". If you're looking for an Open-Source solution, the most common choice would be Drools (now called…"

Open Source legislation?

I'm working on a project pro-bono (yes, as in "free beer") for a state department with a very interesting problem. How many programs (as in "food stamps", not as in "vim") do you think the state offers? I don't know either, but I know there are plenty. How many people in the state actually understand the rules used to administer these programs? Far fewer than you think. The rules are complex even when they can be understood and reconciled with each other, which isn't always.

So, say… Continue

E komo mai Joe! We hope you had a nice weekend. We have one other NOAA person on TechHui, Sunny Bak.

The FAQ is a good place to learn about the site. You may want to join some of the interest groups.

We hope you find TechHui useful and invite others. Happy coding!
