Drupal on the Road: Druplicon Cube is Alive!

Druplicon Cube
As some people might know, earlier this year I was in a contest to win a Nissan Cube. While participating in that contest I had decided that if I were to win, I would decorate the car to help promote Drupal. In effect I would help turn my good fortune into a win for the Drupal community.

In June I found out that I was indeed a winner. Yes I won a brand new Nissan Cube. So what happened to making what I called the drupliconcube? A couple of minor things delayed wrapping the cube:
Druplicon Cube

  1. Wanted to make sure I got it in my hands and that there wasn't some last minute disqualification. There was none.
  2. Wanted to make sure that my car wasn't a lemon so I drove it through its "break-in" period before paying to have it decorated in case it had to be completely replaced. It wasn't.
  3. Wanted to do my homework on car wrapping. Could I do this myself? Turns out I could and I did.

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.
