I love the smell of On Point in the morning.

This Week @Bōwst

Heather and Jamie introduced us to Bōwst Boilerpl8 in a delightful post. I’m sure you saw it, because you’re all kinds of attentive, but if you missed it? You can see it here. Acquia tweeted about it as well … and The Weekly Drop is interested in it. Go team!

It’s a Drupal Planet

Just Say No

Sometimes, Drupal is the answer. Other times? Not so much. Life. It’s like that.

You Will be Assimilated

What is Drupal’s collective purpose? Dries Buytaert has thoughts on this (and probably on the Borg too, but he doesn’t mention them directly).

Where Are My Themes At?

This guy wants to know why there is a dearth of new themes for Drupal 8 … and THIS guy says he has answers. There’s nothing as awesome as a civil exchange of opinions, is there?

Particle Accelerators and other Gadgets

New Toys! Whee!

Google (aka the Googs) gets crazy with new hardware, and some of it looks pretty sweet.

Where There’s Smoke, There’s … Probably Samsung

So now the phones Samsung sent out to replace the phones that were catching on fire? Are, uh, catching on fire. No bueno, Samsung.

High-Faultin’ Tailgatin’

You know what makes tailgating — or any outdoor cookout situation — even better? FANCY GADGETS. Gadgets make everything better.

In Other News

This AI’s On Fire

Samsung is buying their new AI helper from the same company that created Siri. (I think they should name it Sparky …)

QumwI’ Bag je’…
