The CSIX Eco-Green SIG (EGG) has their website up and running. If you
want to take a look then see http://www.ecogreen

I think it's interesting that they are using a Content Mgmt System (CMS)
called Joomla. I attended the Drupal BAD Camp this weekend at
UC-Berkeley. I wonder how Joomla and Drupal compare? Just curious.

Joomla and Drupal are very similar. From what I've read Joomla is a bit
easier to learn and get something up quickly while Drupal has greater
flexibility but with a steeper learning curve to get started building the
site. Once the site is built the content management is easy from either one.

It would depend on the job.

Joomla is very good if you want  a  quick professional looking site. But Joomala has its own way of looking at things.

Drupal is more complicated but has a better abstraction that makes it a better Content Management System and Framework.

I also notice that Drupal seems ( no numbers yet) to consume less system resources than Joomla.

Having said that they are fast approaching the status of "What is better? Emacs or vi?"

Googling Drupal Vs. Joomla produces 4,650,000  sites. :-)
