The State of Drupal

In a talk hosted by Sustainability at MIT, Dries Buytaert relates a synopsis of his life with Drupal. From
its inception during Buytaert's "typical geek" undergraduate days in
Antwerp in 1999, to the upcoming release of Drupal 7, Buytaert places a
particular emphasis on the community that has been created by the
nature of an open source product. Drupal is "software to build websites
with" intended for anyone to modify and improve then redistribute to
its users.

“Drupal is a 'Do-ocracy', meaning the stuff that gets into Drupal 7 is the stuff that people like you actually worked on.

– Dries Buytaert
