Dries Buytaert, founder of Drupal, on WhiteHouse.gov's open source platform

,----[ Quote ]
| Dries Buytaert: Any time a large, high 
| traffic website launches on Drupal, it 
| validates the choice that thousands of 
| other organizations have made when 
| incorporating Drupal into their Web 
| strategy. The biggest questions for any 
| CMS--whether it's open source or not--
| include the following: Is it hard to 
| deploy? Does it meet the functional 
| requirements? Will it scale? Is it secure? 
| Will it help the organization meet its 
| objectives for the Web? The launch of the 
| White House website is another in a long 
| line of proof points that demonstrate the 
| success of Drupal as a web technology 
| platform and a successful open source 
| project.

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.


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

| Solr.
