Through the use of innovative new tools, we hope to broadcast new dog parks, and news about current parks, to as many dog loving people as we can. You are able to catch RSS feeds or even embed whole, constantly updating, regional maps into your own web site. New features will always be popping up.</p> <p>Dog Park USA was formed because couldn&#8217;t find any good sites that were dedicated to mapping dog parks. So we split the work between editor and admin to create a good technology platform and fill it with rich content. The site is a testament to the leverage Drupal gives web site developers. Since we developed this site in our spare time, our limiting factor is time. Re-inventing the wheel is not something we want to do, and with the speed, breadth and depth of Drupal, its contributed modules and its great community, we didn&#8217;t need to.</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/dog-park-usa#comments community publishing hobby Tue, 19 Feb 2008 22:52:21 +0000 gman 1232 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org JustCauseIt.com http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/justcauseitcom <p>JustCauseIt.com is the website for the upcoming print magazine, JUST CAUSE.

This vibrant social network allows many voices to be heard, and facilitates civic engagement on a local level – while still linking people across the country around common causes.</p> <p>The initial version of the site was built in approximately 3 months with a cross functional team including a Project Manager, Lead Engineer, Theme Engineer, Quality Assurance Engineer, Information Architect, Visual Designer and Application Specialist. The client was closely involved in the process from its inception and continues to be as new features are deployed on an iterative basis.</p> <p>The site makes significant use of <a href="http://drupal.org/project/cck" target="new">CCK</a>, <a href="http://drupal.org/project/views" target="new">Views</a> and <a href="http://drupal.org/project/panels" target="new">Panels</a>, as well as <a href="http://drupal.org/project/og" target="new">Organic Groups</A> and a number of other contributed modules.</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/justcauseitcom#comments Activism blog community community publishing magazine media social networking Tue, 19 Feb 2008 02:07:13 +0000 Gregory Heller 1190 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org HowToDoThings.com http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/howtodothingscom <p>How To Do Things.com is a community sharing their expertise to solve people’s problems.

Economic change on this island continues to uproot and destabilize families, and the community is responding in phenomenal ways. To help people share knowledge and to voice their own ideas there is a real need for independent community-driven journalism that reports in-depth on issues facing people here. </p> <p>Each month The Vineyard Voice focusses on one issue generated by the community and directly involves islanders in the reporting and publication of in-depth stories around the issue. We help people publish by supplying the knowledge and tools to write, record and produce content that matters to the community.</p> <p>We have two goals. Our main goal is to become The community publishing and issue-based news and information magazine for the island. Our long-term goal is to prove the technology and the process of engaging communities in this form of journalism and then to give the platform away to community-builders and to journalists in small to mid-sized communities — everywhere.</p> <p>We welcome any conversation about this site and are glad to share our process of development and hope to hear from you. We look forward to meeting everybody in Boston.</p> <p>Thanks to Jerad Bitner and Dave Burns of Sony BMG and to Shawn Priesz for all their work and to Ted Serbinski for his unparalleled assistance.</p> <p>Patrick Phillips<br /> Founder and Publisher</p> http://boston2008.drupalcon.org/showcase/vineyard-voice#comments community publishing magazine nonprofit Sat, 09 Feb 2008 15:33:14 +0000 patrick phillips 843 at http://boston2008.drupalcon.org
