Zynga using Drupal

Drupal isn't only for work: it's also for play, as "FarmVille" creator Zynga proves. While their games usually appear as apps on social networks such as Facebook, its main site is on Drupal. It's a terrific example of how Drupal is used in the entertainment industry. After all, Zynga's annual revenue in 2010 was almost a billion US dollars, and is aiming for an initial public offering that values the company at $15-20 billion.

Chris Rock using Drupal

A lot of the recent “scores" I've listed on this site have been from serious institutions: ING, Investor.gov, The U.S. Small Business Administration, and The World Economic Forum.

But don't think for a moment that Drupal's losing any ground in other areas. I was in NYC recently, the mecca of the media and entertainment industry, and Drupal is about to get really big there -- that's food for another blog post that I'm planning to write.

In the entertainment industry, comedian Chris Rock recently moved his website to Drupal and Acquia Dev Cloud with the help of SuperStar Media. We have a post with more details on the Acquia.com blog at http://acquia.com/blog/acquia-dev-cloud-rocks.

Commonwealth Games using Drupal

Commonwealth games delhi

Though the games have only one more day to go (they were from October 3rd to October 14th this month), the XIX Commonwealth Games website runs on Drupal, and looks great. This 2010 Commonwealth Games were held in Delhi, and is the largest multi-sport event conducted to date in Delhi and India. Certainly a big win for Drupal!

Christina Aguilera using Drupal

Christina Aguilera just relaunched her website using Drupal: http://www.christinaaguilera.com/. The site is developed by Sony Music, and is one of the better looking Drupal sites that I have seen Sony Music launch. No pun intended! Welcome to the family, Christina!

Ashley Tisdale using Drupal

Ashley Tisdale - an actress, singer and television producer - is using Drupal on her official site.

If you don't know who Ashley Tisdale is, it just means you're too old. Bear with me, as with this post, I'm trying to attract more young people to Drupal. ;-)

Grammys using Drupal

After the Emmys, the Grammys are onto it as well. That is, the new Grammy.com is using Drupal -- and Pressflow to be specific. The Grammy Awards, or Grammys, are presented annually by the National Academy of Recording Arts and Sciences for outstanding achievements in the music industry. Cool!
