Have you heard of Drupal? Have you heard the name ‘Dries’? Well, if you’ve been involved in web software in the past five years, I suspect you have. If not, let me introduce both.
Drupal is one of today’s rising stars in the very crowded content management arena. An open source ‘social software’ platform, the product was originally developed by Dries Buytaert - now CTO and co-founder of Acquia, and is regularly found on Gartner’s Magic Quadrant in the highly coveted ‘visionary’ sector.
OHO Interactive continues to strengthen its Drupal portfolio and is proud to annouce our involvement in Drupal Camp Connecticut @ Yale University and our support for the OpenScholar Project at Harvard University.

The Actors Fund – a human services organization in New York and LA serving the entertainment industry – has engaged OHO Interactive to migrate their existing website from Plone CMS to Acquia Drupal.

Have you read it? The article about Dr. J. Craig Venter’s efforts to create a synthetic cell? Interesting stuff. While I’m no chemist, bioengineer, or engineer of any kind, I did find the article interesting.
Google answered that question today at Day 2 of Google I/O, and the answer is at Google TV. But let's not get ahead of ourselves... They spent the first half of the keynote building up suspense talking about the Android momentum:
- 21 OEMs
- 48 Countries
- 65 Devices
- 100,000 Daily activation run rate
- 1 billion miles traveled in GPS navgation
- 50,000 Applications
- 180,00 Developers
They announced the next release of Android 2.2 called Froyo, which has 5 Focus Areas:
The answer is... Both! Google I/O got its name from both a developers roots (Input/Output) as well as developers future, (Innovation in the Open). They kicked off their third annual developers conference today and San Francisco is currently crawling with more than five thousand developers (including two from OHO Interactive) anxious to hear whatever big news it is that is almost always released at their conferences (stay tuned to our blog, it sounds like it'll be announced during tomorrow's keynote at 9AM PDT).
Here at day two of the MarkLogic User Conference in beautiful San Francisco. From a developer's perspective, I can't think of a better way to spend Cinco de Mayo.
The big tagline for the conference (and the giveaway T-shirts) is "NoSQL before NoSQL was cool." And it's true: MarkLogic has been waving the NoSQL flag for nearly 10 years now. The way they store and access data is streamlined, unique, and ideal for a number of Web 2.0 applications.
Today was the first meeting of the GET Conference here in Cambridge. The GET Conference has brought together a unique group of genomics experts, investors and business leaders. A fantastic small setting lead to limited presentations and a large amount of collaboration and discussion. Dramatically lower costs for genome sequencing are going to change our lives in myriads of ways. Today's conference was a creative event discussing concepts ranging from personalized medicine to better disease forecasting.

The landscape has dramatically changed for colleges and universities. Funding has been cut. Traditional "brick & mortar" institutions are competing with online schools. Lifelong learning is now the norm. How do you create a website that effectively recruits students who have more options than ever?
Update! Meet up with OHO at DrupalCon 2010 this week!
Many enterprise IT organizations are looking to manage a wide range of web properties with a single content management instance. Drupal provides three options for multi-site management. One of the better options is the Domain Access Module.
Tufts University in Boston, MA became the first selective university in the US to encourage prospective students to submit videos via YouTube as part of the admissions process.
According to report on Boston.com of the 15,436 applicants to Tufts this year, more than 6 percent submitted a video.
The videos provide an opportunity for students to personalize their admissions applications and highlight their unique abilities. While many schools have always encouraged supplemental material this is the first open call for YouTube videos.
Looking to drive traffic to your site? Search engines are still dominating – make that crushing – social media sites as referers.
A recent year-over-year analysis for one client showed search engines referring 60% of all the web traffic for 2009, while social media sites – Facebook, Twitter, Flickr, Yelp, EventBrite – only contributed 2% of all traffic.
We've seen an increased desire by clients to add mapping to their websites – but they usually don't ask for it that way.
Clients begin by seeking new ways to visualize their information and make it easier to sort through information. In other words, they are looking for ways to make the content more relevant to the user.
We've just launched a new virtual tour mapping application for the Department of Psychiatry at Massachusetts General Hospital. The virtual tour is designed for the department chief and the development office to introduce the department to prospective donors. It covers the four office locations reaching from Cambridge to Chelsea and provides a 15 minute overview of the staff and services through photos and video.
The virtual tour and introduction video were also used in conjuntion with the 75th anniversary of the department and its gala event.
Learn how for-profit schools are using search engines, landing pages, and their websites to increase conversions. You'll also learn how to optimize your website for undergraduate and graduate audiences, and how to use a CRM solution to increase your response rates.
