I attended WordCampSF, the WordPress conference, on Saturday, May 1, 2010, in SanFrancisco, California. It was a great opportunity to meet numerous professionals from the Web publishing and software development industries, including Matt Mullenweg, Richard Stallman, and others.

Sam Bazzi's interest in Drupal and on-line publishing stems from his involvement with counterterrorism activism. Bazzi has authored numerous articles about pro-terrorism activities originating from Khomeinist-controlled Islamic centers and mosques based in the United States and Canada. Bazzi has worked with multiple relevant parties to combat this unfortunate chronic problem.
