Ahh, libraries. The smell of books, the sounds of pages turning, the incessant Karaoke singalongs of the library workers. OK, maybe the last one is a bit far-fetched, but we all know it’s founded in some truth. The fact remains that libraries are a hallowed ground of information consumption and organization.
That organization doesn’t happen by dint of chance. No, there’s a lot of hard work that goes into maintaining a collection, and these steps taken by your local library workers might inspire us to approach our websites with the same set of diligent hands. Get sorting, people!

What happens when Promet sends our CTO to discuss Agile Development to a legal tech conference?8:12pmEEST
Q: What do a group of lawyers and a group of Drupal tech geeks have in common?
My first presentation at a conference with this new, fancy title of "CTO" was Imagine, an annual event for the International Legal Technology Association. I had come to the ILTA Conference with the expectation that in many ways, I’d be the tech geek, sticking out like an astronaut at a rodeo. I mean, the law industry? That’s an industry known for being sleek. And here I am, a glasses-clad CTO from a web development shop... A leading nerd of nerds. Looking out into a sea of bright-eyed individuals who could easily be mistaken for Drupal camp attendees, I realized “I am in my element. It doesn’t matter in what industry I am presenting; it only matters that I am amongst my people: the tech world.”
