Each Drupalcon, I try to provide a State of Drupal presentation to communicate our current Zeitgeist and to share my ideas about what I think is important for Drupal. Next month's DrupalCon Barcelona is no exception.

This time around, I'd like to do something slightly different, and incorporate direct feedback from all Drupal users, contributors, developers, evaluators, and everyone else who has an interest in Drupal's future.

Whether you are a long-term Drupal developer or a recently joined new person to the Drupal community, I'd like to invite you to take part in the State of Drupal 2007 survey that I created. The goal of the survey is to better understand our needs, and to help prioritize our efforts. If you can't attend DrupalCon Barcelona, don't worry; I'll make sure to share the results after the conference.

Maybe the wording of "Before using Drupal, I or my company used..." is a bit unfortunate? People can still use a variety of tools... it sounds like Drupal is the black hole of CMSes ;-).

I loved this survey and applaud the community for putting it together. What a fantastic way to gauge an overall consensus on direction.

I did not see anything wrong with the wording of the question, but caution against assuming all of us now use Drupal in exclusion of other open source CMSs. I used Joomla! before using Drupal and I continue to use Joomla! and Drupal. Those are two amazing environments - don't forget, we getting readying for the merge! ;)

Everyone - enjoy DrupalCon in Barcelona, it sounds FABULOUS!
