The Community Leadership Summit 2013 brings together community leaders, organizers and managers and the projects and organizations that are interested in growing and empowering a strong community. The event pulls together the leading minds in community management, relations and online collaboration to discuss, debate and continue to refine the art of building an effective and capable community.
This year the event takes place on 20th – 21st July 2013 (the weekend before OSCON) in Portland, Oregon and is the fifth anniversary of the event and I am determined to make it bigger, better, and more valuable than ever. Over the previous four events CLS has become the primary annual meeting place for community leadership, and every year we get an absolutely wonderful and diverse attendance spanning technology, education, government, science and more.
At the heart of Community Leadership Summit 2013 is an open unconference-style event in which everyone who attends is welcome to lead and contribute sessions on any topic that is relevant. These sessions are very much discussion sessions: the participants can interact directly, offer thoughts and experience, and share ideas and questions. These unconference sessions are also augmented with a series of presentations from leaders in the field, panel debates and networking opportunities.Sponsorship
I am currently getting the wheels in motion for the sponsorship for CLS13 and I just wanted to invite any organizations reading this who might be interested in sponsoring the event. CLS is not a particularly expensive event to put on, but I want to expand the usual sponsorship this year to add a little more polish than usual to the event. As such, I am looking for companies or might be interested in supporting the event and getting exposure to community leaders across a range of industries, but with a strong focus on technology.
One of the messages I emphasize in my opening plenary is that the sponsors of the event don’t buy editorial direction or influence (as the event is very focused on being free, open, and attendee-content driven), and as such sponsorship of CLS is very much an affirmation of support of the event for the right reasons. As such, association with CLS as a sponsor has typically reflected very well on those companies who have sponsored in the past. Such companies have included Intel, Microsoft, Black Duck, Oracle, O’Reilly, OpenNMS, and others.
If you are interested in supporting CLS, please drop me an email to email@example.com. Thanks!

I had a need to add ACL rules to entities at the repository level.
My biggest struggle was getting dependancy injection working.
This is what I finally came up with after a fresh mind and an instant coffee:

@sil happy birthday! Also, no blog post this year?

And people are already being nice to me on Twitter, even though it’s after midnight and you should all be in bed before you turn back into pumpkins.
It’s my birthday. This year I am thirty-seven. This seems, all of a sudden, to be old. Thirty-six… well, that’s a nice mathematical number, the square of six, the number of possible dice throws, the number of gallons in a barrel of beer. All this makes it seem closer to thirty. Thirty-seven…that’s basically forty, isn’t it?
Forty. Dammit. At some point I wasn’t paying attention, and while I wasn’t paying attention I got all old and responsible and stuff.
On the other hand, this is not necessarily a bad thing. Most of the things I dreamed of when I started writing on this site have come to pass. Or, as someone famous didn’t quite put it, this isn’t victory, but you can see it from here. I have a fabulous daughter, I have a present from my girlfriend sitting in the kitchen waiting for me to open it (which I am itching to touch but I promised her I wouldn’t), my job is great, the entire world’s knowledge is at my fingertips, the internet is available to me even when standing in a field. I’ve learned that the 2003 me was mostly a moron but had the kernel of some good ideas. I’m even learning to cook. Tickets at the Arsenal cost sixty-two quid and we’re once again fighting about DRM (this time in HTML5) and weathering the storm of uneducated commentary, but in the last thirty days we’ve seen the first 3D-printed building planned, facial recognition software defeated, and the Ubuntu phone released. It’s an exciting time to be alive, even if you’re nearly forty.
Happy birthday to me.
