Szeged and the future of MediaRSS

For the first time I gave a presentation at a Drupalcon. I was a bit nervous at first, but all ended up well with some nice reactions from other people. It also convinced me completely that I should separate all MediaRSS functions in the PicLens module into a separate contrib called MediaRSS API. Not sure when I'll get to this, but it's the most logical thing todo, but I first need to clean up my issue queue since I didn't had a lot of time this week to work on my existing projects.

On the contrary, I had a good time networking at Szeged Drupalcon meeting a lot of new people and catching up with the ones I knew. I also started working on Views UI Permissions after some brainstorming with old colleagues after the last session on thursday. The first version was online friday morning, so in a way I did my own code sprint. And I was one of the winners of the Testing Party, hurray! And a first little test ended up in MediaRSS support for Kris Vanderwater's Imagefield Gallery project.

Anyway, back in Belgium now, allready counting off to the next Drupalcon. Big thanks to the Drupal community, you guys so rock!

Drupal PicLens module mentioned on Cooliris blog

A few weeks ago, the crew of Cooliris contacted me for some more info about the Drupal PicLens module I wrote. They now published an article on their blog with some of the answers I gave them. I hope I didn't say anything stupid though .. The story also mentiones the Phoca Gallery for Joomla! with PicLens support, so I guess every major framework/cms out there is picking up the hype of PicLens and MediaRSS.

People who attented the closing session at Boston in March surely remember the awesome slideshow with pictures of the entire DrupalCon. Well, now you can enable PicLens support for images on your very own Drupal site. If you have no idea what I'm talking about, check out the implementation of PicLens (lite) on my own image gallery of Random pictures, just click on the 'start slideshow' link. Drupal and PicLens: a very sexy combination if I say so!
