Fairfax Australia using Drupal

When Lullabot came to Australia last year to do training in Melbourne, we had a good smattering of corporate attendance. On one table we had a developer from the ABC, THE public broadcaster in Australia, sitting next to a developer from Fairfax, which controls much of the corporate media here. It was quite exciting to consider that the biggest media organizations were exploring Drupal internally.

Today Leigh Morresi alerted me to the technology website of SMH - sure enough it's running Drupal 6! This is a really good sign, and goes along with a general increase in Drupal noise in more than a few sectors down-under.

Interestingly, I also found a post by Jaza from way back in 2005. I wonder if there are some quiet Drupal advocates floating around in there...
