This weekend we finally, after months of mucking with it, launched Cooperation Commons' new site. Previously we had built the site on Plone which has a poor security model and blogging tools. This meant that we spent a lot (and by a lot I don't mean a little), time fighting spammers and other malevolent entities.
Now we've moved to Drupal which has a better security model and is purported to be more stable. However, Drupal was annoying for an all-volunteer army to subdue. We went through several Drupal jockeys in getting the site fixed up.
I am grateful that Howard Rheingold didn't fly to Seattle and throttle me during the process. I am happy that I had Paul Hartzog to suffer along with. And I'm knee-shakingly humbled by the heroic efforts of James Day, Brian Kerr and Hellekin Wolf for beating Drupal into submission.
