2011-11-22 Update

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Tue, Nov 22, 2011 - 4:58 pm

Part of the website improvements I have in mind include changing the location where files are downloaded from. So for the next ½ hour or so, some of the links will be broken for those trying to download the PDFs, one podcast episode which is available, and user pictures.

I also hope to update the HTML5 animations and remake the homepage so it’s doesn’t resemble a blog. The latter will probably not happen this week, and probably will take place in stages.

Update 2011-11-14

Wow, so many things to report. From high-level to low-level.

Probably the most significant recent event was the 2011 International Drug Policy Reform Conference. It was totally amazing. Awesome. Every superlative under the sun. If you didn’t go, please check out the website: where you can get a taste of some of the great speeches given, like the one Alice Huffman gave during the opening plenary where she made us all gasp at once.

Propaganda and Footnotes

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Wed, Sep 21, 2011 - 6:15 pm

Now that the handouts have stopped evolving so much it’s time to address an accusation some have made against them, “propaganda.” Since the handouts don’t have enough space to cite every source, I

FREE Trip and Dinner with President Obama

Submitted by Thinking CAP on Sun, Sep 18, 2011 - 10:28 pm

President Obama invites you (and three others) to an all expenses paid trip and dinner to teach him about the intrinsic failures of prohibition and what to do about it. We need action, not just lip service or promises of “tomorrow,” or “I’ll have my people look into it.”

Been busy. All three flyers have been updated, I uploaded them directly to the server since I couldn't connect to the website, it was too busy.

I left off a few things from yesterday’s post.

MAMP, Drupal, CiviCRM

I’ve been updating a batch of software I’ve used to hold contacts. Although I love Apple Macs, before OS X I needed a decent contact manager and other integrated software so I used FileMaker Pro to develop a relational database which kept track of individuals, organizations, addresses, etc… But as my needs grew it also meant I had to spend more time developing my databases. And although I love a great puzzle and learning new things, I needed to focus on other matters, not software development.

2011-08-03 Update

“So, what’s been going on?” you may ask. Probably the most exciting thing, and one of the most time consuming, has been updating “What We Are Saying and What We Are Not Saying.” Then making it fit on a flyer.

I hope to publish it soon. As with all the flyers and handouts thus far, they are designed to be printed by average people on average printers on average paper and to that end the flyers are not heavy on ink, which is really expensive.

I’m awaiting feedback from trusted sources, so hold your horses. :-)

The Mission Statement section on the About page has been updated a little bit. But we have a much more significant update coming soon.
