    Great stuff. Does it also mean that those universities site’s are easy to hack for the people in the know? :) Just kidding.

    I guess it’s pretty logical that those universities use WordPress because it’s super easy to setup. Is it me or more tech oriented universities tend to use Drupal for their sites?

    • Chris Raymond says:

      And what would those universities be? I see MIT, Texas Tech, and FIU in a quick perusal. I’d love to see your list!
