I recently moved several gigabytes of audio podcast files off of my server into the cloud. Amazon S3 is a simple and cost-effective way to reliably and quickly distribute files like podcasts to a large audience.
Check out this slideshow by Robert Douglass at a recent conference in Europe. Pretty heavy on the Acquia love, but a nice overview of some ways large companies are rolling out dozens of sites and micro-sites to as many different audiences with Drupal.
Where do I even begin?
First of all, I must preface that the Drupal Community is without a doubt one of the best open source communities. (meaning: most open, most likely to share code, experience and best practices, most innovative, most forward-thinking, least likely to "chase the bunny", most likely to be the bunny, and most likely to create tons of venture-backed companies in the next few years)
40twits takes a look at the stats for the shortened URLs you post to twitter and decides which ones are most popular, then displays them in order. Dave's current top link as about Wikipedia and Michael Jackson.
I've been following Dave Winer's writing for some time, and he often has some great things to share with us. Lately Dave and Jay Rosen, who teaches Entrepreneurial Journalism at NYU, have started publishing a series of discussions about creating a "rebooted system of news". After 10 episodes, Dave created a dedicated website and feed for the show. You have to subscribe: http://www.rebootnews.com/
