South African Government using Drupal

The South African Government is using Drupal for their official 2010 FIFA World Cup website at With the start of the 2010 World Cup just hours away, this is a timely discovery and a nice win for Drupal. The site was built by eConsultant. (Hat tip: Usamah)

It's nice to know that more and more big names use Drupal for their web image. Though it looks like the site was made in a hurry :)

This site was built by (Acquia partner) and had a huge last minute rebuild/upgrade that was done in less than a month. The interesting fact it is fully managed by ONLY one very busy journalist. Awesome showcase of Drupal power: quick to set up, scalable enough to handle FIFA world cup 2010 traffic, and simple to manage ;) Follow the South African Drupal community on Twitter @DrupalZA.

Good news and all, but It saddens me when people don't take care of the finer details.
