zFacts runs on Drupal, an open-source content management system (CSM). Basically, Drupal is the big brother of WordPress. Drupal does, blogs, books, forums, galleries etc. on a mix-and-match basis. It's much more flexible but hard to learn.
How Drupal got its name. Dries Buytaert was looking to buy a URL, and mistyped dorp, meaning village in Dutch. So he bought drop.org. The Dutch word for drop is druppel, which English speakers pronounce "droo-puhl," and which Dries transliterated to Drupal when he released the first version of the software publicly in January 2001. Now the White House web site runs on Dries' drops.
