  • European Union's FOSS Education Portal based on Drupal

    I just can't believe the year Drupal is having.  There has been an explosion of Drupal sites almost everywhere you turn.  Drupal is very popular with the masses in 2007.  So popular in fact, that I wonder as with all things popular if we'll be seeing 2008 as the backlash year against Drupal as it has quickly evolves as a litmus test for open source CMS (one of my predictions for 2008). The latest Drupal-based site to flash on the screen of my browser is the portal (currently in beta) for the…

  • Financial Times: The irony of a web without science

    I found this article via Creative Commons' Science Commons.  In the Financial Times article, "The irony of a web without science", James Boyle writes:The greatest irony, though, is this. The world wide web was designed in a scientific laboratory to facilitate access to scientific knowledge. In every other area of life - commerce, social networking, pornography - it has been a smashing success. But in the world of science itself? With the virtues of an open web all around us, we have proceeded…

  • ComputerWorld: Respect and Beyond Process Design

    There are a couple new articles at ComputerWorld that peaked my interest and may be something you too will be interested in reading.  The first is an opinion piece by Frank Hayes, "Frankly Speaking: Rewiring Respect for IT".Why don’t IT people get more respect? On this Labor Day, things are actually looking better for people who work in corporate IT. Budgets aren’t quite so tight. Companies are hiring. Interesting IT projects are getting a green light. But when it comes to how our fellow…

  • Staying with budget hosting (at least for a little longer)

    You may have not have been able to access CMS Report Friday evening and early Saturday morning.  That's because I've moved CMSReport.com over to a new shared hosting account with a hosting provider I'm associated with via a reseller plan. The same host provider I've been using using all summer. The fact that I'm still using a cheap hosting plan is a big surprise to me.  Why is that?  As you may recall, I had only planned to host my Drupal sites on a budget hosting plan for a few months.  After…

  • Linux.com and NewsForge.com

    Is there anyone else disappointed that Linux.com and NewsForge.com now mirror each other in content?  In the past I've called this the CMS déjà vu phenomenon.  I'm not sure what to think about it.  No wait, I do know what I think about the two sites basically merging into one...I don't like it.  I really do miss the diversity in stories the two separate sites once offered.
