Linux Journal using Drupal and Mollom

,----[ Quote ]
| Linux Journal is a monthly magazine focused 
| specifically on Linux. Linux Journal 
| switched to Drupal in 2005, and hasn't 
| looked back since. Last year in October of 
| 2008 Linux Journal decided to turn to 
| Mollom to protect their site against 
| spammers.

| Elin Waring, the president of Open Source 
| Matters , the non-profit that administers 
| the project, said in a post on the Joomla!

,----[ Quote ]
| Open-source CMS vendor Alfresco is also a 
| backer. The company said Monday it has 
| included support in the 3.2 version of its 
| platform for CMIS 1.0, which is now in a 
| public review period scheduled to end Dec. 
| 22. CMIS' inclusion in Alfresco 3.2 will 
| enable users to get a hands-on look during 
| the review period, the company said.


UMS portal may not cost students

,----[ Quote ]
| Gregory said one of the vendors that 
| presented at a Sept. 30 meeting of the 
| visioning committee is Unicon, a software 
| consulting services firm that focuses on 
| software portals for universities. It is 
| unknown if Unicon is the vendor that 
| offered the $20 per student fee estimate. 
| Unicon presented two products to the 
| committee: uPortal and Liferay, both open-
| source options.
| Redonnett said the four options Caruso and 
| the IT directors are considering are an 
| open-source program from a vendor, joining 
| a consortium of universities that use an 
| open-source option, a portal developed by a 
| vendor around a set of requirements defined 
| by the system and a pre-developed solution 
| from a company. She said about 70 percent 
| of colleges and universities have software 
| portals like the one proposed for the 
| system or are currently working to create 
| one.



Should the White House Contribute to the Open Source Community?

,----[ Quote ]
| While this measure may not be an immediate
| cost-saver (5 different companies are
| involved in re-building and maintaining the
| White House web site), long-term costs
| should fall as government agencies are able
| to borrow from the greater Drupal community
| while incrementally improving on the
| websites code. But the question remains,
| will the Obama White House share some of the
| contributions itâs making to open source?


Whitehouse.gov could be a springboard for Open Source for America

,----[ Quote ]
| Like many of you, I awoke Monday to read
| that whitehouse.gov was now running on open
| source products, including Drupal, Red Hat
| Linux, Apache web server, MySQL, and Apache
| Solr.

Obama Team Challenges Web Developers

,----[ Quote ]
| Having rebuilt Whitehouse.gov on the open
| source Drupal platform, President Obama's
| new media team is calling on the open
| source community for new ideas and
| technology.
