R.E.M. using Drupal

R.E.M is using Drupal for their new tour website at They are also using Mollom.

I don't know who built the site, but it is a good social publishing showcase. They actively encourage all R.E.M. fans to share and catalog the content they've created. They show the most recent tweets, Flickr photos, YouTube mashups, concert footage, etc. All very cool!

Nike using Drupal

Nike media beijing

Sportswear manufacturer Nike is using Drupal for their Beijing Olympics website. What is remarkable is that the content on the site is being translated to at least 13 languages (see language drop-down on screenshot). That is a testament to Drupal 6's improved internationalization features, and further proof that I'm not crazy. ;-)

If anyone is working on internationalization improvements for Drupal 7, let me know. I'm accepting patches ...

France24 using Drupal


France24, France's answer to BBC World and CNN, recently switched from Magnolia, an Open Source CMS written in Java, to Drupal. What is interesting is that France24 was one of Magnolia's flagship references ... I wonder what happened.

MotoGP is the world’s premier motorcycling championship, with a season of 18 Grands Prix in 14 countries bringing together the world’s top motorcycle manufacturers such as Honda, Yamaha, Suzuki, Ducati, Kawasaki, Aprilia and KTM - plus an elite crop of riders from every corner of the globe. Their website just relaunched on Drupal: see Rumor has it that on racing days, they serve up to 2 million pages a day. Yowza!
