Drupal is a Webware 100 winner for the third year in a row. This year Drupal was in the Social & Publishing category with well known services including MySpace, Facebook, Twitter, and Wordpress.com. Drupal was one of 10 winners in the category.

From CNET

The 2009 Webware 100 Awards recognize the best Web 2.0 sites, services, and applications on the Web today. After receiving more than 6,000 nominations for inclusion in the Webware 100, our editors selected 300 finalists. But the Web's users made the final cut, voting more than 600,000 times to select the 100 top products -- 10 each in 10 categories -- from our list of 300 finalists.

If you are a member of the Drupal community, you can add one of these badges to your Drupal site. A big thank-you goes out to all those supporters who voted for Drupal in the awards.

I knew the competition was tough but I was surprised to see who we were competing against in the announcement.

Surprises included a few products that did not make the final list of winners. Google's Blogger didn't make the cut, for example. In fact, Google had no winners in the hotly-contested "Social & Publishing" category at all; this category got more votes, 185,000, more than any other.

Digg also didn't place in the winners' lineup this year, nor did it last year. Although a "dugg" ballot for a contest like the Webware 100 can generate a big spike in votes, our traffic charts show that these spikes don't lead to the the sustained traffic necessary to drive enough votes to win in a category.

Great, but we can use your "badges" even if we are not a (paying) member? It is a great marketing of Drupal for our readers

There is no cost to be a member of the Drupal community, so anyone in the Drupal community can add the Webware 100 2009 badges to their website.

The only paid membership for Drupal is the Drupal association membership. Paid membership in the Drupal association is way for community members to provide financial support for the Drupal project by funding infrastructure, Drupalcons, the redesign, and marketing activities. See http://association.drupal.org/membership

Cheers,

Congratulations all! Whatever Drupal business you're in, I think everyone worked hard to improve Drupal on almost any level. The proposition it has for the variety of enterprises is expanding almost each day. The recognition Drupal gets is a testimony to this achievement, I think!
Beers! ...and then back to our labours. ;-)
