The Flemish Radio- and Television Network (VRT) uses Drupal for 16+, a community website to accompany one of the television programs they broadcast. The website allows people to upload and share pictures, music and video. Belgian newspaper De Standaard described 16+ as the "Flemish YouTube". Belgian newspaper De Morgen refers to it as being an "online community".

Development of the website was coordinated by the Interdisciplinary institute for BroadBand Technology (IBBT), a research institute founded by the Flemish government. Next week I'll meet some of the people behind 16+ and IBBT as I committed to giving them a short Drupal presentation.

Dries, this is great news! And while it might be smaller than, it is good to see traditional media/government institutions in Belgium use Drupal. Until now Belgium (together with The Netherlands) didn't have many large Drupal implementations in that area which is strange given the origin of Drupal.

Once again great news and please post details about this meeting if you can.
