DrupalEasy Podcast 74: The Marketing of Drupal

There’s a full house on the podcast this week as Andrew, Ryan, and Mike are joined by Dave Terry (Mediacurrent), John Hannah (Friendly Machine), and Glenn Hilton (ImageX Media) to discuss the Drupal community’s less-than-stellar effort of marketing our beloved software to people outside the community. Both Dave and John have written thought-provoking blog posts on this topic in the past few months while Glenn has been a leader in organizing and evangelizing Drupal business summits. We also managed to discuss the Drupal Association’s recent at-large elections, Coworking Fridays, Acquia’s recent code contributions, recent usability studies, as well as our picks of the week!
