Linux Foundation using Drupal

In 1996, Linux kernel development is what first attracted me to Open Source, and what led me to contribute to the Linux WLAN project in 1999. Ever since, I've worked on or with Open Source projects pretty much full-time.

Last month at the Open Source Business Conference in San Francisco, I met Mike Woster, Director of Business Development at the Linux Foundation, the non-profit consortium dedicated to fostering the growth of Linux. Turns out they are avid users of Drupal.

In 2008, they switched the Linux Developer Network to Drupal, earlier this year they launched a video site on Drupal, and most recently, LinuxFoundation.org itself switched to Drupal! And rumor has it there might be more to come ...

InfoWorld using Drupal

InfoWorld relaunched on Drupal 6 yesterday! Check out their new site at http://infoworld.com. InfoWorld has been around since 1978 and is a well-known resource for IT professionals. I hope they write up a use case because it is a great testament to Drupal 6.

The project was done by Optaros (an Acquia partner), with help from Airbag Industries for the design work. Chris Fuller was the project lead.

Francesca Battistelli using Drupal

Francesca Battistelli is using Drupal for her official website at http://francescamusic.com. The site is built by her record label Warner Bros Records (also a Drupal site), and is one of the best looking artist sites that I have seen. Nice!

Michael Jackson using Drupal

Not only is there a new tour, but MichaelJackson.com, the official site for fans of the King of Pop, has just re-launched, featuring some new community-oriented features and some old-school graphics from back in the day. MichaelJackson.com was built using Drupal by the good folks at Sony Music. They are also using Mollom to protect against comment and forum post spam. Moonwalks!

Obama using Drupal

This afternoon, in Denver, Colorado, President Barack Obama signed the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act, also known in US political circles as the "stimulus bill".

The bill provides new spending, tax cuts and aid to state and local governments all totaling almost $800 billion US dollars, making it the largest spending bill in that nation's history. Designed to create jobs and provide a boost to a sagging economy, the bill focuses on green, renewable energy and investments in health care technology.

Of immediate interest to us, however, is the accompanying website, recovery.gov, which -- you guessed it -- is using Drupal!

Drupal is no stranger to the political arena, and has been used for many campaign and government sites before. Recovery.gov, though, is a definite coup for Drupal -- there are not many Drupal sites that have their own post on Whitehouse.gov. Or on the Huffington Post. Or is featured on CNN all day long. Or has its own YouTube promo by the US President. Unbelievable!
