I'm looking for sponsors to help support this newsletter. If your interested shoot me an email using the contact form at theweeklydrop.com/contact.
In case you missed it (since I haven’t mentioned it here), I started working for MediaCurrent as a Senior Drupal Developer a few weeks ago. TheWeeklyDrop is not affilated with Mediacurrent and remains independently owned and operated by me. By the way, Mediacurrent is a pretty cool company ;)
