"Two years ago, Drupal's lead developer, Dries
Buytaert, told Computerworld that his five-year goal was to see
many more people using Drupal in many more places to build
increasingly complex websites. With a number of attention-gaining
Drupal sites launched around the world since then, it seems that
Buytaert is on his way to achieving that goal.
"Buytaert is predicting that, as has been the case in other
countries, the recent launch of large government websites like the
Prime Minister's and the ABC sites will trigger further Drupal
adoption in Australia.
"“This is certainly the pattern that I've seen throughout
the rest of the world. First, there are many small sites and
eventually a few higher profile Drupal sites launch. This generates
a great deal of enthusiasm in local Drupal communities because it
validates the work that so many people do, generating momentum for
new Drupal opportunities,” he said."
