"Aus die reihe": Drupal Howto's from IBM; Part 5: Getting started with Drupal "Using open source software to design, develop, and deploying a collaborative Web site"
A rather good howto I must say from a rather cool company IMHO.
It would be so nice if IBM would give the same support to Drupal as they did to Linux, but that is dreaming.
It is all over the web, but yes, IBM will use Drupal for one of their community sites.
I think IBM (See Dries) is right on when they see Drupal is both "outofthebox" yet also a "framework" that needs love and custom code to do anything. I also liek the proces on /how/ IBM decided and the transparacy of it a lot. See for example:
And we already made the frontpage of digg, so no need to digg more .
Open AJAX is nothing more than a hype within a hype. Open source project to take Ajax mainstream
And that's a very negative reason to do so, to prevent to let MSFT in. Just remember that is was Microsoft who first started to do AJAX things, but didnt "get it and didnt gave it a cool name.
And the website of openajax has a huge mistake, http://www.openajax.net/wordpress/. They are mixing up functionality and a program. I mean, why run your blog in the directory named after the product? What if they migrated to a real CMS?. Rewrite all the URL's? I think the fact that myblog is in a directory called myblog is stupid enough, but I wasnt so stupid to call it drupal2.0 or something.
