Yet Another Drupal Site

YADS: Us Magazine


Old news, but here it goes. The second largest magazine in the US (titled: USmagazine.com) website has been drupalised. Us Magazine switches to Drupal

Us Magazine, second in circulation only to People Magazine, has got a rapidly growing audience on line. They seem to understand the current blogging zeitgeist more than People Magazine does. And they've just revamped their online presence. Their website has switched to the Drupal platform. As with many other large corporate sites, they are finding that the open-source Drupal model is much more flexible and desirable.

Any other old skool media that still think you need expensive CMS-es like esenic that deliver half the functionality and costs twice -in fact way more- as much?

YADS Networkworld drupalised

NetworkWorld.com's blog section has been drupalised; The Great Switchover | NetworkWorld.com Community

Do not adjust your monitor, but please update your bookmarks.

After a bucolic 2.5+ years on Moveable Type, Layer 8 is now movin' on up to Drupal, which - hopefully - will not be as bratty as MT when it comes to our Very Important Polls and such.

They need to use mod_rewrite however, URL's like http://www.networkworld.com/community/?q=layer8 are rather uncool.

Moby bashing George Bush

Moby is right! Using Drupal for is site, flipping the finger to GWB: moby.com
"you are probably the worst president that the united states has ever had to endure."

From the view of the RoTW, yes. Bush is the worst thing that could happen to America and the Work in general.

dear president bush,
stay out of new york.
you don't like us and we don't like you.
90% of us voted for john kerry in the last election. we don't trust you, and we believe, based on your record, that you've been a terrible president.
you're supposed to come to new york city today.
you're not welcome here.
you only come to new york city when you need to bolster your poll numbers.
you came here after 9-11 even though you ignored warnings of terrorist attacks and cut funding to anti-terrorist programs.
you came here for the rnc convention even though your policies have made america less safe.
you are not welcome in nyc.
go back to texas where you can cut wood for the tv cameras.
or go back to washington d.c where you can watch dick cheney run the country.
you are a liar.
you are inept.
you are probably the worst president that the united states has ever had to endure.
you are not welcome in nyc.
we are not your cheap whore, to use whenever your poll numbers are in the toilet.
we are not your crappy prop, to use when you're worried that you might have to deal with the consequences of your failed policies.
you suck, and we don't want you here.
everything you've done has gone wrong. you are in the pocket of the oil and defense industries, and the poor idiots on the religious right actually sometimes believe that you care about them and their agenda.
you only believe in issues that will keep your corporate backers happy.
you are an awful, inept, corrupt, and tragically incompetent president.
and i'm sorry that you've chosen to come to new york city on 9-11.
we didn't vote for you and we're not in any way happy that you're here.
go home, gw, and let us just get on with living our lives in the city that was attacked
due to your pre 9-11 ineptitude and incomptetence.
-moby

MTV's user based content based on Drupal

It's all over the Drupal web and has been known for some time, but now it is public; MTV's MTV.co.uk is Yet Another Drupal Site. But one with great influence; culture wise and technical. Looking at the site, I think it is rather ugly. That has nothing todo with Drupal, but with the fact that I am too old now to like MTV. As a student I had MTV on nearly 24/7, back in the days of the immer so funny Ray Cokes (homepage | youtube clips), "Can I take your dress down?" After Ray left MTV, MTV became what it bought, a music factory.

The official "pressrelease" of the cool lullabot can be found online.

Lullabot (www.lullabot.com) has partnered with MTV Networks UK & Ireland to provide back-end support and management to the newly updated mtv.co.uk consumer website. Using Drupal technology the site will continue to host news and information for all of MTV UK’s current broadcast channels but will provide an enhanced user experience through use of Drupal’s community ready core functionality.



In addition Lullabot will also enable the site to act as the user front-end for MTV UK’s new multi-platform channel called “MTV Flux”, again using Drupal technology, enabling viewers to interact with MTV and each other.

Regarding this last service, MTV's user generated content portal, there is a personal page of one of the developers (Theodore Serbinski) as well.

The user generated content portal of MTV sure got some mainstream airtime:

Cool job!
