Vote for "Drupal: Content's Magic Bullet" Session at Internet Week NY!

Drupal: Content's Magic Bullet

Drupal powers a huge number of Enterprise (Sony), Government (White House), Education (Columbia University) and Non-profit (DoSomething) web sites. How has this FOSS project grown in 10 years from an experimental student CMS to a full-blown Content Management Framework? How is Drupal adapting to support Responsive Web Design and Mobile-first content delivery? Drupal Application Engineer Randall Goya has worked with Oxygen Media, Adidas, Guess Watches, Columbia University, Pronto Media/IAC and B&H Photo to tailor Drupal for their content publishing needs. Kelly Bell founded the Gotham City Drupal collective for the NYC Drupal Developer community. Alex Urevick-Ackelsberg is Co-Founder & CEO of Zivtech, a web development company focusing on expert Open Source Software services. Richard Baldwin is President at epiSolve, a company providing technological innovation and targeted solutions. What makes Drupal such “awesomesauce?”

Yep, been pushing this out for 6 years since 2006:

Certified to Rock Drupal

Woopricon - isn't that the Evil Druplicon?

I use the Wappalyzer addon for Firefox to see what applications and frameworks are being used on a web page: Drupal, jQuery, Google Analytics, Wordpress...

Tonight I happened to be viewing the CoreXchange, Inc web site where a client hosts his files, and noticed two Drupal icons (generally known as "Druplicon") - but one of them was evil and associated with Woopra, a web analytics service.

Wappalyzer icons

Although the offical Woopra logo is their name with eyes in the double O-s

Woopra logo

Their icon (which is not referred to as "Woopricon" - but it should be)

looks eerily similar to the Drupal mascot "Druplicon"

It's also not surprising that I found a discussion about this resemblance on the offical Drupal web site, dating back a couple of years, and mentioning trademark infringement. I don't think any action was ever taken, that's not the "Open Source" way - and everybody knows that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery!

ps- try typing "druplicon" into the search box on this page ;)

The offending email (I suspect #15 tripped the rule)

kosher computer

I don't know if you know this, but you can now purchase Kosher computers! They are made in Israel by a company called DELL-SHALOM. The price is so low... even with the shipping from Israel! However, before you purchase a kosher computer of your own, you should know that there are some important changes from the typical non-kosher computer you are used to, such as:

1) The 'Start' button has been replaced with a 'Let's go! I'm not getting any younger!' button.
2) You hear 'Hava Nagila' during startup.
3) The cursor moves from right to left.
4) When Spell-checker finds an error it prompts, 'Is this the best you can do?'
5) When you look at erotic images, your computer says, 'If your mother knew you did this, she would die.'
6) It comes with a 'monitor cleaning solution' from Manischewitz that gets rid of all the 'schmutz und drek.'
7) When running 'Scan Disk' it prompts you with a 'You want I should fix this?' message.
8) After 20 minutes of no activity, your PC goes, 'Schloffen.'
9) The PC shuts down automatically at sundown on Friday evenings.
10) It comes with two hard drives - one for fleyshedik (business software) and one for milchedik (games).
11) Instead of getting a 'General Protection Fault' error, your PC now gets 'Ferklempt.'
12) The multimedia player has been renamed to 'Nu, so play my music already!'
13) When your PC is working too hard, you occasionally hear a loud 'Oy Gevalt!'
14) Computer viruses can now be cured with matzo ball soup.
15) When disconnecting external devices from the PC, you are instructed to 'Remove the cable from the PC's tuchus.'
16) After your computer dies, you have to dispose of it within 24 hours.
17) But best of all, if you have a kosher computer, you can't get SPAM...

Spring Sprang Today in February

Freakish weather, almost 60º F in February is NOT normal for NYC!

I even found some confused crocuses blooming in Jersey City:
