The Public Press www.public-press.org is a concept for the next-generation daily newspaper. We're organizing a group of journalists, technologist and nonprofit managers to organize a new newsroom for the San Francisco Bay Area that would produce a Web site, daily print newspaper and collaborations with nonprofit news-gathering organizations locally and nationally. We've built a simple Drupal 6 site that we will be growing in the coming weeks and months, and we plan to start publishing on the Web using this platform.Read more
We are going to launch a new travel website.
Let us know if you see any bugs.
It's the first stage of the project and we are looking to increase interaction with the readers. Do you have any User Generated Content suggestions?
We were thinking of uploading photos, posting stories and blogs, sharing tips and advice...

I wanted to introduce myself, and our now-powered-by-Drupal sites, PilotOnline.com and HamptonRoads.com. I'm Jeff Anderson, and I work as the product development manager for the interactive division of The Virginian-Pilot newspaper based in Norfolk, Virginia. The Pilot is a top 50/60 U.S. daily newspaper by circulation size, and PilotOnline.com was one of the first newspaper websites to go online in the early 1990s. Along with its sister site HamptonRoads.com, a local portal focused on entertainment, community and local guides, we recently ranked No. 6 in the U.S. in terms of the percentage of users in a local market who use a particular locally-focused site. On December 10, we re-launched both sites on a customized Drupal 5.x platform.Read more
I thought I might introduce myself and say a few words on my relation to Drupal.
My name is Johan Falk, and I live in Uppsala, Sweden (though I work in Stockholm).
I'm technology and web editor for a Swedish popular science magazine. We're planning on changing CMS from a home-grown solution to a big and open one, and after considering Joomla for a while we found that Drupal probably is our best choice. I've now spent a few weeks on learning Drupal a bit better (I'm not a programmer), and my excitment is still accelerating.
I'm the interactive media editor at the Norwalk Reflector, a small newspaper in northern Ohio. We are currently building a new website on Drupal, which we plan to take live Aug. 1. I'm pretty excited about it, but since I'm the only one in the building who can program, I'm also a little overwhelmed.
Right now, my biggest issue is figuring out the best way to do video on the site. If any of you have some wisdom to impart on this one, I'd be very grateful. We're looking to be able to have video with stories, to do videocasts, and to have video sharing for our users.Read more
Hello from the Chicago area. In February, the Sun-Times News Group launched a new citizen journalism site, www.neighborhoodcircle.com using drupal and I am finally getting some time to get on here and tell you all to take a look at our site. I believe Yelvington blogged about it. We are still working through little glitches here and there and trying to find the best ways to get locals involved. We launched this in the far western suburbs of Chicago to get our feet wet, but we would like to grow the sites in other communities.Read more
