Red Hat and Drupal Announce New Support/Training Offerings 

,----[ Quote ]
| There are a lot of open-source solutions 
| that would be perfect for enterprise use, if 
| only you had a reliable support and training 
| partner to back up your development efforts.


TheNation.com Gets Open-Source Overhaul

,----[ Quote ]
| The site has also gone open-source with a 
| content management platform called "Drupal": 
| The Nation explains the far-reaching 
| implications:
|     "Open source" software code is published 
|     and made freely available to the public, 
|     enabling anyone to copy, modify and 
|     redistribute it without paying or 
|     earning royalties or fees. ItÃââs like a 
|     song that a musician can sample or remix 
|     for free. This creates a community of 
|     global web programmers who can share and 
|     improve the platform. The idea is rooted 
|     in community: One person creates, 
|     another person improves, and the 
|     knowledge is widely shared. If he 
|     understood open source, Glenn Beck might 
|     well denounce it as a socialist 
|     practice. 
| The remaining updates are more conventional. 
| The new site introduces verticals -- 
| "Politics," "World," "Books & Arts," etc. -- 
| to categorize stories and make them easier 
| to find. The site also features tighter 
| integration with Twitter, enhanced 
| multimedia offerings and an improved mobile 
| user experience.

WordPress: A Brand to be Managed 

,----[ Quote ]
| This conference is a cross between a 
| training session and a user community 
| support group, and this year had over 600 
| attendees. (@technorin tells me 
| 800.)Moreover, it is only one of 45 already 
| scheduled to be held this year all over the

State of Drupal presentation (April 2010)

,----[ Quote ]
| Two weeks ago at DrupalCon San Francisco I
| gave my traditional state of Drupal
| presentation. A total of 6000 people
| watched my keynote live; 3000 were present
| at DrupalCon, and another 3000 watched the
| live video stream. Nonetheless, a lot of
| people asked me for my slides. So in good
| tradition, you can download a copy of my
| slides (PDF, 48 MB) or you can watch a
| video recording of my keynote on
| archive.org.
