Some background info:
These interviews took place on the last day of the Open Source Content Management System (OSCMS) Conference held in Vancouver, Canada, between 7th and 9th February 2006.
There are two clips:
In "Getting To Know Drupal" (16 min 28 secs) chief Drupalite Dries Buytaert chats about how Drupal has developed and offers some ideas about its future. He's joined by Drupal developer Jeff Robbins of Lullabot.com.
The second series of interviews (a bit longer) is also from the Vancouver OSCMS (aka Drupalcon) and looks first at different ways that Drupal is being used by a variety of organisations.
