VRT using Drupal

The Flemish Radio- and Television Network (VRT) uses Drupal for 16+, a community website to accompany one of the television programs they broadcast. The website allows people to upload and share pictures, music and video. Belgian newspaper De Standaard described 16+ as the "Flemish YouTube". Belgian newspaper De Morgen refers to it as being an "online community".

Development of the website was coordinated by the Interdisciplinary institute for BroadBand Technology (IBBT), a research institute founded by the Flemish government. Next week I'll meet some of the people behind 16+ and IBBT as I committed to giving them a short Drupal presentation.

NowPublic launches new website

NowPublic launched their new website today! Think of NowPublic as a combination of Slashdot, Digg and Flickr (albeit not as popular yet). Contributors share the news they read as well as original content that they write, creating a popularity index or "best of the news" which readers can then view by the subjects and locations that interest them. In addition, members can also contribute to any story by adding audio, video, and photos. Of course, they are using Drupal.

(Disclosure: I am an advisor to NowPublic.)
