Under the hood of Observer.com

New York Observer tag cloud headsThe New York Observer underwent a redesign using Drupal as its content-management system. The project leaders have posted an article on Drupal.org about how they redesigned the site, shoveled over 22,000 old articles and overcame the challenges they faced while doing it.

They also include details on how they built the interesting variation of a tag cloud, which uses illustrations of subjects’ faces instead of text (XML file here).
