Another month gone, another stack of accomplishments by the evolt.org community.

As a reminder, this is open to anyone in the community, so if you missed a chance

to toot your horn, add a comment,

and watch for the announcement for next month's news.

Evoltspottings

All over the web, people are looking to see what evolters have to say, and

sometimes they point their users back to the source. Here are some of the pointers,

all noticed this month:

Thanks to the many people who have taken the time to cite evolt.org in their

own work

We're getting organized

Behind the scenes, evolt.org members have developed five groups, plus two

other bodies, to help organize and run evolt.org. The five groups and their

purposes are:

The Steering Committee, being organized now, will be made

up of two members from each of the 5 groups. Its purpose is to help set goals

for the groups, monitor progress, and solve disputes—should they arise—amongst

the groups.

TheForum is a catch-all list for general communication between

the different evolt.org committees, and for discussing non-committee-specific

issues. Anyone can join

TheForum
, and we encourage your participation. If you have ideas for evolt.org,

or can contribute even a little bit of time and energy into helping us thrive,

we'd love to have you!

Help support evolt.org

We're now again able to accept monetary gifts through:

Our address for monetary gifts or giving inquiries is give@evolt.org.

We will soon have a snail mail address (for checks, money orders, etc.).

We're looking for other on-line, commercial (in other words, not personal

bank account), low-cost money transferring capabilities so that non-US residents

may more easily help support evolt.org. Please

write us
if you know of any good commercial services in your country.

Here's more information on how

to help support evolt.org. Thanks for your interest!

Beervolts

Frisbeervolt in Toronto

Thanks to a ColdFusion conference in Toronto, .jeff

and nagrom worked

their way up north to meet up with r937,

Mishka, mwarden,

sprocket, and aardvark.

We started off, of course, with food followed up with sneaking into the CF North

conference, and then a little more food. With rudy (r937) taking us on a wonderful

frisbee golf outing to cap the night (he won, of course), it turned out to be

a blast. Ideally, next time theglass floor won't fall out of the CN Tower and

suck us all to our death. Um, yeah, anyway, there are photos

of the weekend posted
.

Beervolt London

The London evoltistas got together again - Mike, John, Megan, Martin and special

non-evolt guest, Emily. We started

out aboard a ship converted to a bar, then moved on to somewhere where we could

get a drink in without queuing for 45 minutes.

Mike had the world's smallest and cheapest digital camera and took some

photos.

Our members

Dan Cody (djc)

The spark that started evolt.org and led contributors to the community for

much of its life so far has decided to discontinue his involvement in order

to devote more time to his interests in Linux advocacy, public speaking, and other web

projects. evolt.org members wish Dan

Cody
well in his future endeavours and thank him for his awesome contribution

to the community.

Dan's initiation of the wonderful members.evolt.org

service remains as one of his greatest contributions. Take some time to browse

one of the 150+ tutorials or news

pieces
Dan had published in his time with evolt.org.

Paul Cowan

Paul made a respectable showing in Who Wants to Be a Millionaire, although

he's framed it a bit more frankly on

his personal site
.

Adrian Roselli (aardvark)

An interesting month all-around. The Algonquin Studios team, led by Adrian,

went on to an overwhelming victory

at the first ever Unreal Tournament Shoot-out
. Soon to be a biannual event,

competition for the next one will be tough, and his team is already marked for

destruction by the others.

Adrian also co-wrote an article for Multilingual Computing & Technology

magazine, titled A

Merger of Content Management and Localization Workflow
, detailing the merger

with a localization firm and integrating a localization workflow into their

QuantumCMS

content management system.

Cayley Vos

Cayley is proud

to announce a redesign of workskiff.com

to improve navigation, improve brand recognition, and increase search engine

traffic. The government is a significant client, so the design had to follow

accepted standard usability features. You can compare the redesign with the

original

site
.
