Be Circle Created Drupal? A nice thought... But No.
While searching through google images for other interesting projects people have done with Druplicon in anticipation of the Crafty Drupal BOF session at Drupalcon Szeged, I came across a post made about my Drupalicon Druplicon Munny Tutorial. In the post, the author accidentally attributes the creation of Drupal to Be Circle.
"Today's tutorial is brought to you by Be Circle, the company that created Drupal (a blogging software).
They did a tutorial showing how to turn a Munny (from Kid Robot) into a Drupalicon."
Well gosh... However much I'd like that to be true, it simply isn't the case. Be Circle is a huge cheerleader of Drupal. Be Circle certainly encourages anyone that will listen to adopt Drupal as their CMS platform. Be Circle tries to give back to the local Toronto Drupal Community (and in turn the community as a whole). But, Be Circle cannot take credit for "Creating" Drupal.
The credit must go to literally hundreds of developers who have worked tirelessly over the past several years. They (collectively known as the Drupal community) created Drupal. They deserve all the recognition they can get!
So hats off to the Drupal community for their outstanding achievements.
