IHeartAdoption.org - Educational and social networking site on Drupal 6 -

Iheartadoption.org is a website developed by the Independent Adoption Center (IAC) that addresses the issues birth parents face when considering open adoption for their child. The site provides a social network for birth mothers, on-line counseling support, parent profiles, as well as stories, photos, and videos contributed by IAC birth parents. The site was developed in house using Drupal 6, and was made possible by a grant from the Albert & Elaine Borchard Foundation.

Predictions for 2011

Predictions for 2011 -

We have a tradition since 2003 that at the beginning of each year we look back on what has happened and make some predictions for the year ahead. Lets start with looking at the past to see what people thought about 2010 in this posting .

One of the best things that happened to Drupal in 2010 was the fact that the redesign went live, as predicted. Thanks to the Drupal Association and the hard work of many volunteers. On the other hand, one of the things nobody thought would happen... didn't happen. Drupal 7 was not released in 2010, yet 1,000 people (and more) worked hard to make D7 the best release ever shipping with a stable release in the first days of 2011. WordPress won the Packt Publishing CMS award with—after a tie—one vote more than Drupal. This shows that WP has become a complete CMS, as was also predicted, despite their own words that We don't want WordPress to develop a reputation.

The last comment, Now I just hope that 2011 is better than 2010, is one that I totally agree with. Not because 2010 was bad, but because 2011 will be even better!

My own highlight for 2011 was DrupalCon Copenhagen, with a Kitten Killers classic and lots of freedom (as in speech and beer) spreading around.

The social media world was one of the pioneers that have conquered the illusive and mythic mobile web. Nowadays updating your Twitter status or Facebook wall using mobile device is a daily thing and there’s nothing sensational about it as it was a couple of years ago. Many users have faced the software issues because sometimes you just can’t find a good application that will meet your requirements and satisfy your needs, but you know as they say – “seek, and ye shall find”.

Taking into consideration the latest accomplishments of Android powered devices and their rapid growth on the global market we’ve decided to kill two birds with one stone and have gathered the best social media applications of the most popular social networks, and you can install them all at your Android phone for free. Most of these are official applications so you shouldn’t worry about their quality because all these social networks have earned perfect reputation among the web community and do care about their presence in the mobile web. Anyways we sincerely hope that new year of 2011 will bring us more awesome applications and other goodies to melt the hearts of geeks!
