Red Hat launches opensource.com community site

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat has launched opensource.com as a 
| community site for open source. The Drupal 
| powered site has been created by Red Hat but 
| Jim Whitehurst, Red Hat's President and CEO, 
| says "This will not be a site for Red Hat, 
| about Red Hat.


Red Hat becomes an open source community organizer

| The most important is probably Venkatesh 
| Hariharan (right), who goes by the screen 
| name Venky and is listed as head of open 
| source affairs at Red Hat. I see him as key 
| because Venky is a journalist, thus I assume 
| the editor here.
| He has already done grand work bringing a 
| South Asian perspective to the open source 
| community through his own blog. He is co-
| founder of IndLinux, the team that localized 
| both GNOME and KDE for the Indian Linux 
| community and has been a Knight science 
| journalism fellow at MIT.




Welcome to the conversation on opensource.com

| As the CEO of Red Hat, this is a day I've 
| been looking forward to for quite some time. 
| In my travels, I often find myself talking 
| to people from all walks of life who see 
| opportunities for the lessons of open source 
| to be applied broadly to the world around 
| us.
| At Red Hat, we've used open source 
| principles as the backbone of a successful 
| technology company. We know there are 
| opportunities to apply the open source way 
| broadly in business, in government, in 
| education, in the law, and throughout our 
| lives.


OpenSource.com launches on Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| Red Hat just launched OpenSource.com on 
| Drupal. The site will focus on exploring 
| what happens when the open source way is 
| applied to the world, beyond technology. The 
| site has 5 main channels: business, 
| education, government, law, and life. In 
| each channel, they'll explore how open 
| source is having an impact on each of those 
| areas. The content is meant to be very 
| conversational and participatory, making 
| Drupal a natural choice. Needless to say, it 
| is great to see Drupal being used to promote 
| Open Source way beyond technology. It is 
| also rewarding to see Red Hat, the mother of 
| all Open Source companies, using Drupal.


Red Hat launches opensource.com with Drupal

| Red Hat has just launched a new portal at 
| opensource.com - for information and 
| articles about open source. The site uses 
| the Drupal open source content management 
| system and it looks like Red Hat has been 
| working on the site since at least October.



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!


Another look at Drupal

,----[ Quote ]
| Early on in the first year of this blog, I got
| to investigating the use of Drupal for
| creating an article-based subsite. In the end,
| the complexities of its HTML and CSS thwarted
| my attempts to harmonise the appearance of web
| pages with other parts of the same site and I
| discontinued my efforts. In the end, it was
| Textpattern that suited my needs and I have
| stuck with that for the aforementioned
| subsite.
