My Uncle Hugh called me up last year asking if I knew anyone who could help him get a website setup—he's very polite like that—for a book he'd written on the housing crisis. Once he said he didn't really care what it looked like—and I knew I wouldn't have to do a bunch of themeing—I knew I'd be able to set him up something simple using Drupal, so of course I offered to help. It was a nice change from the normal insanity of incomplete specs and legacy requirements that the day jobs always entail. I got to just plug together off the shelf modules and enjoy using Drupal for a change.
I haven't been able to read the book yet but he's a fascinating guy so if you're interested in a first hand account of the housing meltdown go checkout The Great American Housing Fiasco by Hugh Morton. I'm going to demand a copy as payment for the website ;)
