To support Namecheap's opposition of SOPA and PIPA and to help preserve the open web, the Drupal Association has decided to move its SSL certificate to Namecheap.

After Namecheap, the leading domain name registrar, web host, and SSL certificate provider, stepped up against SOPA and PIPA in 2011, hundreds of new companies joined Namecheap's family, including the Drupal Association, which has elected to move its SSL certificate to Namecheap.

Namecheap has donated over $64,000 to the Electronic Frontier Foundation to help the organization fight for our digital rights. Namecheap also blacked out its front page on January 18th, urging US customers to petition their government officials to ask them to shelve both acts in the House and in the Senate.

Drupal Development showcases West Health Policy Center's 'smart technologies' such as mobile health monitors and clinical research analytics.

Last week, MJD Interactive Agency launched a website for the newly announced West Health Policy Center (http://www.westhealthpolicy.org). The Policy Center aims to lower health care costs through improved reimbursement models, innovative ‘smart technologies’ such as mobile health monitors, and advanced clinical research analytics.

Philanthropic pioneers Gary and Mary West have made a multi-million dollar, multi-year commitment to establish the West Health Policy Center in Washington, D.C. with the goal of saving more than $100 billion in cumulative health care costs within 10 years by identifying common sense changes in reimbursement and regulation that can be acted on immediately and do not require legislative action.

MJD Interactive was again contracted for the custom build of the Policy Center site after launching a very successful site for the West Health Investment Fund last quarter in 2011

What exactly do you spend your days thinking about when you're a digital director of a presidential campaign that's on track to win the Republican nomination? Zac Moffatt, 32, leads the digital side of the Mitt Romney campaign. He moved up to Boston last spring with his wife after some years in Virginia and jobs throughout Republican politics, including work on Bush-Cheney '04, with the Republican National Committee, and a variety of high and low profile races with his firm, Targeted Victory. We talked recently about the shortcomings of judging digital by the same sort of raw metrics we apply to, say fundraising (see, the Washington Post's @MentionMachine ), about how much of tech politics is happening behind the scenes, and about what digital success looks like.

The road to a successful open source project: Learning lessons from Drupal [Jan 10, 2012]

By almost any measure, Drupal, an open source content management system/Web platform, should be a poster child for open source success. The PHP-based CMS, the first version of which was released by Dries Buytaert in 2001, powers the Web presence of a number of major organisations, including, since 2009, Whitehouse.gov.

When it comes what other open source projects can learn from Drupal's success, Buytaert, who is now chief technology officer of Acquia and remains Drupal's project lead, says that although he doesn't have all the answers — and that "there's no one right way" to do things — there are some lessons to be learned.

Responsive Web Design with Drupal

Click to see video transcript

Voice-over: Your next web project needs to be built on Drupal using the principles of Responsive Web Design. Responsive Web Design is a new way of building sites that look great no matter how they’re accessed on any device; avoiding the cost and complication of investing in specific native apps or mobile sites. Note how page elements on this Drupal site automatically resize and change position as the size of the browser window or the device changes.

Your next web project needs to be accessible, look good and function on any kind of device, not just on laptop or desktop computers. Gartner predicts that mobile phones will overtake PCs as the most common web access devices worldwide by 2013 and concludes, “Websites not optimized for the smaller screen formats will become a market barrier for their owners.” Many mobile web users, including 25% of US mobile users, don’t use desktops, laptops or tablets to access the web. dotMobi estimates that as of July 2011, there were 6,500 distinct web-capable mobile devices in use. You don’t want to have to build a specific version of your site for every one of those. Drupal already does Responsive Web Design today with tools like the cutting-edge Omega theme written in HTML5.

Here’s the barebones Drupal site showing how the Omega theme works. It has default breakpoints to switch between grids of 1200, 960 and 720 pixels as well as a mobile version built in. Here are a few Drupal websites built using Responsive Web Design and the Omega theme. You will notice images resizing or being replaced on the fly and block and color layouts dynamically changing. The mobile version of a site theme commonly has navigation optimized for touchscreens and leaves out unnecessary page elements to improve page load speed. Drupal has always been ahead of the curve on technologies like RSS and the semantic web. Now it’s leading the Responsive Web Design charge, too, with Drupal products like OpenPublic and OpenPublish being delivered responsive design capable out of the box. Drupal makes it fast and easy to create sites that look great and function on the widest range of devices.

Drupal is a social publishing platform that powers millions of websites and online applications. It enables you to build innovative, content-rich social web experiences at every scale. With a community of hundreds of thousands of users and developers, Drupal’s success has spawned the global business ecosystem. Thousands of pieces of add-ons software extend what it can do.

The social business revolution has already begun. In today’s highly interactive business landscape, Drupal —a powerful open-source, enterprise level web infrastructure—empowers companies to harness the Internet’s social strength to deliver real business value. On January 26 the power of Drupal will come to San Diego and the Southern California business community.

Leaders in the Drupal community invite executive technophiles and IT leaders to join them for the Drupal Business Summit San Diego, a one-day event for high-level decision makers designed to quickly explain the fast-growing Drupal technology and the benefits it can have on their organizations.

A cornucopia of different companies have already implemented Drupal to create communities, get closer with their customers and employees, and improve top-and-bottom line ROI.

“Drupal is a robust enterprise-grade platform that has powered some of the busiest and most expansive websites in the world,” explains Ron Huber, president of San Diego-based Achieve Internet, a leading Drupal technology company. “Its flexibility as an open-source technology can save companies serious money while delivering the performance they need. We hope the Drupal Business Summit will help enlighten the San Diego and Southern California business communities of that potential.”

Getting beyond "free" - UK government uptake of open source

Misplaced priorities hampering UK government uptake of open source

According to a computing.co.uk article entitled Open Source: The government's commitment so far, most of the IT technology used in the UK government is still proprietary and comes from single vendors.

Open Source adoption by government agencies in the UK is progressing, but is still being hindered by a focus on "free as in gratis". Decisions based on cost-of-acquisition alone ignore the other real and more important values offered by open source, which are derived from "free as in freedom".
