PersonalDemocracy.com:
WhiteHouse.gov Goes Drupal
October 30, 2009 @ 12:39:16

In a new article on the Personal Democracy site Nancy Scola looks at the recent change of the Whitehouse.gov website over to use the Drupal content management system.

After months of planning, says an Obama Administration source, the White House has ditched the proprietary content management system that had been in place since the days of the Bush Administration in favor of the latest version of the open-source Drupal software, as the AP alluded to in its reporting several minutes ago.

The change was made so the site could be both more effect and easier to maintain with the added benefit of being built on a well-developed and supported Open Source platform. Nancy also suggests that a more towards Open Source like this could help things lean towards more openness in the general democracy.
