Hash: SHA1

| software technology, has raised a $500,000 
| (CAD) Series A funding. Vanilla Forums was a 
| Techstars summer 2009 company.


Commercial open source had very good 2009

,----[ Quote ]
| 2009 was very good for open-source businesses. 
| Sure, there was the very public news of Red 
| Hat's gravity-defying year, along with 
| Novell's SUSE Linux business climbing each 
| quarter, but what of the still-private open-
| source companies?



Happy ninth birthday Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| Exactly nine years ago, I released Drupal
| 1.0.0. When I shared my hobby project with
| the world, I expected no more than a dozen
| people to actually use it. It took a large
| community of people to make Drupal
| successful, but today, Drupal has hundreds
| of thousands of friends. Thank you to
| everyone who has been and is contributing
| to Drupal. Rock!


Symphony-CMS.com - A New CMS That Is Open Source

,----[ Quote ]
| In this particular case, Symphony is
| powered by XSLT and it is an open source
| release â those who are knowledgeable and
| kind enough can contribute to the project
| as much as they wish in order to make this
| content system even more approachable.


Will Open Government Directive drive Drupal usage?

,----[ Quote ]
| Acquia will also offer a seminar series for
| U.S. federal, state, and local governments to
| discuss adoptions and best practices for
| government use. This is definitely a smart
| move, as risk-averse government agency IT
| decision makers will take comfort in the
| successes of their peers with Drupal Social
| Publishing.
| Acquia appears poised to take advantage of the
| growing interest in open source and social
| media. Increased use of Drupal will open the
| door further to open source adoption within
| governments in the United States and worldwide.
| In doing so, Acquia is definitely playing its
| part as a founding member of Open Source for
| America.


Drupal thrives in Taiwan

,----[ Quote ]
| After a while I discovered that there was even
| a Drupal Taiwan website. So I got in touch
| with the site admin and head organizer,
| Charles Chuang, and he let me know there would
| be a meetup in late December. The gathering
| would be at a local cafe in central Taipei and
| the topic would be new features, discuss
| strategy, and socialize to make new friends
| with like-minded souls.


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.


White House web site goes open source

| files into the popular WebCMS. Currently only
| the content of ODF text documents (.odt) is
| imported, future releases will support other
| ODF types as well as importing styles.
