It is a real honor and privilege that BusinessWeek included me on their list of top 30-and-under innovators for 2008. I'm very happy to see Drupal getting this level of recognition from the business world. What BusinessWeek only hints at, though, is the importance of all the thousands of people, including my new colleagues at Acquia, who are working every day to make Drupal great. This is a big milestone for Drupal so congratulations to all of you.

Congratulations Dries, this is a well-deserved tribute to you as a fantastic leader. You know the Drupal community thinks highly of you, and it's great to see people outside the community agree. You rock!

This is the perfect acknowledgment for someone who is at the same time bright, has vision and still keeps both feet on the ground.

And a handsome picture too. Karlijn might ask for a printout. :)

Well deserved recognition! The increasing profile of Drupal is really exciting. Having a figure head that remains focused on the quality of the system gives a great amount of assurance to those that use it.
