Drupal Inspiration

Today's post will be a short one. Judith has me workin hard (or hardly workin, eh Mac?) on an article for the UNLV Discovery issue of ITAL. The article should be a real thriller, easily as exciting as any episode of 24 or Lost.

It's always good to have sources of inspiration. Be it the discovery of a potential new type of cloud, or something simpler, like a list of 70 great sites built with Drupal.

Some of my Favorites on the list:

One thing I noticed - none of the sites on this fantastic list ended with .edu! Sacre bleu!

There are so many cool things we can do with our website. I'm not talking flashy designer fluff which adds no value. I'm talking about creating rich experiences for our patrons, which actually make them want to use the Library website. We've got a ton of cool stuff in the library, from The World Series of Poker to The Boomtown Years. We just aren't strutting our stuff. We need to take some advice from Burt Reynolds.

"I just go from place to place and... do what I do best.

- What's that?
- Show off."

- Smokey and the Bandit

If you're interested in other good sources of Drupal inspiration, here are a few extra:

Enjoy, find some inspiration, and share your thoughts as to how we can make the web site more interesting!
