I've had a chance to really dig into Google+ the past few weeks, and it's an interesting critter.
What I really like:
- Total control over who you follow and why. That's great.
- Tighter integration with the rest of the web. Facebook is a closed ecosystem, although many (including Z-Com's) websites now feature Facebook integration. But all that does is facilitate the integration of your website into Facebook's ecosystem.
What I don't love:

We're now offering a semi-customizable solution for nonprofits looking for a lot of functionality, a fast deployment time, and a pretty deep discount over a fully custom solution. We're calling it "Association in a Box". This is what you get:

Z-Com Creative is growing fast, and we're looking for both experienced Drupal contractors as well as opening up a few internship opportunities.
• Extremely firm grasp of Drupal 6 configuration.

We've launched our latest version of University Animal Hospital's website, featuring updated art direction and dramatically improved structure and functionality all around. We've also done some cool tricks with feeding content to Facebook. Go check it out and let us know what you think!

We've already upgraded most of our clients to 6.20, but if we haven't done you yet, please let us know. There are no security updates in 6.20; this is mostly a housekeeping thing.
In addition, Drupal 7.0 has officially launched. Pretty exciting stuff! But, much like the 5.x to 6.x transition, not all the functionality you find in 6.x has found its way into 7.0 yet. We'll be deploying upgrades to 7.0 probably later in the year, or early next year, but only when we can do it smoothly and without losing any vital functionality.

We've put the finishing touches on our snazzy new medical intranet suite for Intraoperative Monitoring Services. Unfortunately, due to HIPAA regulations, we have to keep the whole thing on the d-l. Short version: a really intricate workflow management system for users at every step of a neurosurgery case. You thought brain surgery was complicated? You should check out brain surgery case management.
Anyway, sadly, no links to the site, no screencaps, nothing.

Attention clients! There's a new core update for your Drupal websites. If I haven't already performed the upgrade, please email me when you'd like me to take care of this. It's a security upgrade, so it's important to keep up with.

I’ve worked with several nonprofit organizations of various stripes over the years: a trade association, a charter school, an animal rights group, and educators. Of course we work with small and midsize businesses as well – but nonprofits are a whole other critter.

The Arizona Association for Environmental Education website is live and awesome. Community generated content, a robust back end that is entirely volunteer-run, a searchable database of resources for the public, all running atop the Drupal CMS integrated with CiviCRM. It's pretty breathtaking.
