Monty Python using Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| Time to bring up your favorite Monty Python 
| quotes, because Monty Python is using 
| Drupal! Check it out at 
| http://pythonline.com. Good example of a 
| community website built with Drupal.


Is an Open Source Online Video Platform Right for You? 

,----[ Quote ]
| Can Kalturaâs open-source OVP really do 
| everything that a closed-source provider can 
| do? Unfortunately thatâs not in my realm of 
| knowledge to answer. Can it do some things 
| better than a closed-source can? Youâll 
| likely get differing opinions from 
| developers on that one. Does it really have 
| an âeasyâ solution that makes it accessible 
| to a larger audience of video publishers? 
| Yes, but I would say it appears to be 
| heavily towards one type of audience â those 
| with IT resources available. It would be 
| interesting to find out if anybody without 
| programming experience could actually build 
| an successful video experience using just 
| limited version of the Kaltura video 
| programâ and say it was âeasy.â


Better Coding Standards in JavaScript 5

,----[ Quote ]
| In general, these changes are for the 
| greater good in terms of code compliance as 
| well as cross-browser compatibility (my only 
| bane is that most browsers are not strictly 
| compliant in terms of W3C standards, but 
| this might be resolved within the next 2000 
| years.)
| At the end of the day stricter standards 
| imply better coding and in turn powerful 
| code that does not break. The additions of a 
| standard JSON parsing mechanism and strict 
| mode will be of great benefit to developers, 
| with the potential to translate into smaller 
| libraries for Prototype and other extension 
| libraries required. On the whole, JavaScript 
| 5 seems to be moving forward where 
| JavaScript 4 failed to even get moving, let 
| alone take off. Let's hope that in the 
| future these things become an ally to 
| developers rather than yet another setback 
| in the struggle for ultimate browser 
| compatibility and perfect coding technique.


Silverdrek is going nowhere.


Forbes Russia using Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| The website of the Russian Forbes magazine was
| recently redesigned using Drupal.


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

,----[ 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.
