How did you get involved with Drupal?

Jim Morrison and a naked native american came to me in a dream and told me it was my destiny. Just kidding. I started up my own IT consulting business and I'd built a couple of Drupal 5 sites.

How did you get involved with Drupal?

About 4 years ago, I took a job as a developer with Aten Design Group, where we do mostly Drupal projects. At the time, I was pretty skeptical of content management systems, after frustrating experiences with both WordPress and Joomla. But I quickly grew to appreciate Drupal’s modular architecture.

What do you do with Drupal these days?

I nominate.... Dmitri Gaskin! and of course.. The Drupal Song!

So.. ive been off making websites for sometime.. mebbe 15 yrs or so due to family commitments etc.. and the highest ever skill's I had was with phpnuke and a big contributer at the time to nukecops with my baby nuke100.com which inevetibly was hacked over and over because I was no good at protectin my lil self against mysql injections.. so alas I became deflated and sacked the whole thing and started to focus more on my proper job with the local council.. hmm.. Im still there too :)

Im now 40 yrs of age and was inspired recently by my 5yr old son whilst me and him stood in the queue at the local shop.. who whilst telling me about a dream he had the night before..

Daniel: Daddy... I had a dream last night..
me: Did you Dan? what was it about?
Daniel: Well.. it was more like a nightmare.. It had aliens in it!
me: Oh ek.. well.. what colour were these aliens Daniel?

to which Daniels face changed into that look of "you nutter"... "Daddy.. all aliens are green.. why did you even ask?"

at which point me and the shopkeeper simply looked at each other in bemusement :D

but I thought a couple of minutes after his story.. what a name for a website!

and so allaliensaregreen.com was born..
