It's Still a Who's Who of WCM
I wish I could show you the magic quadrant diagram to give the picture in a quick snapshot, but I can't. Suffice it say the players are pretty much all the same — this is a who's who of web content management. What does this tell us? I think it tells us that the game is still the same and the established players have all the equipment necessary to play it.

Taking a quick look back at where vendors were on the WCM MQ list last year (in November to be exact), you can see that the leaders are solidified and it will take some bold moves to get into that quadrant. Interestingly, Ektron has been able to do it. Oops. Did I spoil the surprise?

Why I Stopped Giving It Away [Aug 27, 2012]

Becoming a hero among Web developers was cool--but it didn't actually pay. So Dries Buytaert, the developer of Drupal, built a company.

Recently I was in Portland, Oregon, and as I was walking to my hotel, some guy comes up to me and says, "Are you Dries?"

It's not like I'm a pop star, but I do get recognized. It happens at the airport, in supermarkets, and even at the beach.

I'm not the kind of person who likes to be in the spotlight. But at the same time, I feel very natural in my role, and so when I get recognized on the street, it's nice to have an opportunity to learn how that person is using Drupal.

There is a lot of passion in the Drupal community. I've seen people shave their heads and leave nothing but a Druplicon, Drupal's logo. At Drupal events, some developers dress up as the Druplicon. Some people have even gotten Drupal tattoos.
