The adoption of CiviCRM in the past couple of years has boomed, and as of late we have taken on some rather large implementations of the CRM system for advocacy and international development organizations. The CiviCRM community has been lacking local user groups to support developers, administrators and persons interested in learning more about the platform. In response to this need, we have decided to start the first Washington DC CiviCRM Meetup group.

I read this article that predicted the decline of Facebook a little while ago, and I've found myself thinking about not only the future of Facebook, but the future of social networking in general.

This post continues our mini-series on web strategies for Higher Education and Drupal. Last time, I reviewed 7 Suggestions for New Drupal Users in Higher Education, so this time I have 11 smaller scale improvements that Drupal users in higher education can deploy to get even more from their sites.

We've been talking to a lot of universities about using Drupal to power some of their websites, and we've learned a lot of about the kinds of challenges and specific needs that Universities and Colleges have on the web. As we've been developing specific strategies for these clients, we've also noticed several overarching themes. So rather than keep this to ourselves, we thought we'd share some of these observations in the forum of suggestions for universities that are considering Drupal.

Shai Sachs over at MyDD posted a interesting article on the use of Drupal as an alternative community blogging platform to Soapblox. Soapblox, a community blogging platform popular among progressive bloggers, has had some issues recently, there have been ongoing financial concerns, and the platform was recently hacked. This has raised a red flag for many progressive bloggers about the prolonged sustainability of the platform.

Trellon seems to be facing more and more projects where our customers need to make a decision on which content management system to use for their web properties. We work with open source technologies and have vast Drupal expertise so we can assist with the decision to use Drupal as the underlying content management system for Web properties vs. a proprietary program. Here we will lay out the pros and cons of each so that you, the reader will have a better understanding of the optimal direction for your firm.

One of Trellon's current projects is a site called "Untamed Science," which is designed to be a reference, accessible and useful to all ages, on subjects related to biology and ecology. While the site is still in progress, we wanted to break in and talk about the way we're using the Taxonomy module to organize content on the site.

Hello Trellon friends!

I'm Sam Kleinman, the new Trellon blogger that Michael Haggerty mentioned in his post earlier last week, and I wanted to introduce myself before I got into the real swing of things.
