BADCamp (Bay Area Drupal Camp) will take place at the UC Berkeley campus on Saturday and Sunday, Nov 3rd and 4th. BADCamp is an excellent opportunity to immerse yourself in Drupal for a couple of days and have a blast doing it.
PledgeBank is a powerful tool for encouraging people to take action and to positively pressure their friends, family, and neighbors to join them... by creating conditional pledges of the form, 'I will do X but only if N people will do X too.' For example, 'I will vote in the next presidental election but only if 25 young American adults will do the same' or 'I will donate my clothes and shoes that don't fit me or that I haven't worn in the past 3 months to a local homeless shelter but only if 10 other people will do the same.
