Technorati Source: Taking yet another step into widely utilizing open source technology, the Obama administration recently released its decision to use Drupal, an open source content management system, as its software of choice for the administration of Whitehouse.gov. President Obama has had an ever-present push for an open and transparent government and using Drupal CMS is a definitely a great step into the right direction.
According to the creator of Drupal, Dries Buytaert, "Drupal's flexibility and modularity enables organizations to build sites quickly at lower cost than most other systems. In other words, Drupal is a great match for the U.S. government".
This writer couldn't agree more and has always been a rather boisterous fan of Drupal. There is something about seeing this presidential administration open its eyes to the value and importance of open source software that brings a sense of pride and hope. Here's to hoping we see more open source technology being utilized in our government.
