New video: The Acquia Story

Following on the heels of the video about pronouncing our name, we've released one that's more serious -- and that, I hope, will be useful to the Drupal community at large.

Five data sheets for promoting Drupal

We at Acquia gain unusual and valuable insight into the Drupalsphere. Besides working with some of the community's most visible and active members, the experience of servicing over a thousand enterprise clients shows us just how grandly this platform we love has taken hold.

My employer Acquia is a commercial open source company.  That means that they make money (commercial) off of software they don't own (open source) and there are more than one of us (company).  It should be clear then that Acquia's survival is totally dependent on the success of the software it provides services around, Drupal.

Yesterday, Mozilla announced a new initiative called BrowserID, which is an easy, secure way to log in to websites without having to remember your password for each individual website. So last night I wrote the BrowserID Drupal module, which lets people log in to Drupal websites using BrowserID.

Angie Byron, aka webchick, is probably the second most well-known person in the Drupal universe, between her awards, magazine covers, and role as the Drupal 7 co-maintainer.

Acquia Cloud Gettin' Git

I'm pleased to announce that the Acquia Cloud will soon support Git repositories! We're rolling this out over the next few weeks. I'd like your feedback: Are you a Git user? ... an SVN user? ...or something else? If you're a current customer, how we can make the upgrade process as painless as possible?

A writer joins Acquia

Today marks my first day as Acquia's Director of Content and Communications, although I've been following the company since its birth.
