Today, we received an announcement from the folks at Joomla! which we couldn't pass up. The Joomla CMS has been downloaded more than 50 million times. Just as impressive, Joomla is currently being download at 1 million downloads a month.
Joomla is used to build, organize, manage and publish content for websites, blogs, Intranets and mobile applications. A few other milestones to note is that Joomla is also currently the world’s second most utilized CMS behind WordPress and ahead of Drupal. If you do the math, that translates to 3.1% of all the world’s Web properties now run on the Joomla platform. Joomla! is also claiming that about 630,000 people have had input into the CMS since its launch in 2005.
If you're an insider of the content management industry, you're well of aware of the recent claims by some that the content management system is dead. If you're still using CMS as part of your vocabulary, you must not be keeping up with the times because it's all about customer experience management (CEM or CXM). This is what some want you to believe.

Jimmy Atkinson from The Web Hosting Database recently sent us a note about WHdb.com updating their Top 50 Drupal Reference & Tutorial Sites. Jimmy asked us to help spread the word about the page (see his email attached below).
As a Drupal user, I find resources like this page to be helpful so I have no problems giving WHdb a plug here. One thing you will want to note about the page is while they did number the list for easier read, the resources are not listed in any particular order. Also, at the time I viewed the page I found a couple of the links broken. These things happen and perhaps by the time you read this, Jimmy has already made some corrections on the page.
