Looks like AOL's corporate site is now a Drupal install. Yay, Drupal! :)
It would be nice if those multi billion entities which use Drupal contribute back to it in a even minimal sum of their worth and resources... there are many forms of contribution not just dosh.. IBM sets an example towards http://www.ibm.com/developerworks/ibm/library/i-osource5/
What makes you sure they don't?
Many of the "multi billion [dollar?] entities which use Drupal" do this in many ways already. I would be surprised if AOL (or whomever built the site for them) doesn't already "give back".

I have not came cross any reference if AOL does as oppose to i can of IBM's.
If they do a pointer would be useful share towards the AOL contribution to inform Drupal and wider public -unless it kept secret for some justified reason
also it can be beneficial for them -in this case AOL- for their promotion, to put themselves in the class of 'big corporations contributing or committing to the open source'
also according to Berthttp://willy.boerland.com/myblog/aol_corp_on_drupal
using Drupal nearly a year and there is not even reference/write up to Drupal on their site -afaik yet a contribition
Yes, it is Drupal 5.x with Ubercart.
Although AOL is kind of a "has been" in technology, this is their corporate web site. Nice to see a large corporation adopt Drupal nontheless.

No joke! I didn't even realize they were using Ubercart for the media gallery. That rocks. : )
For those interested, they're using Ubercart to distribute downloadable versions of their logos for press use. They only require an e-mail address to "checkout" and then provide zips w/ the license and image files. Very innovative use of Ubercart, and we're stoked that they're doing it. To see it in action, you can view the Media Gallery there.

AOL is a huge brand name, just being able to say that AOL is using Drupal is impressive. It would be nice if they put a link in their footer.
