  2. 2. HistoryIn 2000, permanent Internet connections were at a premium for University of Antwerp (Belgium)students, so Dries Buytaert and Hans Snijder set up a wireless bridge between their student dorms toshare Hanss ADSL modem connection among eight students. While this was an extremely luxurioussituation at that time, something was missing: There was no means to discuss or share simple things.This inspired Dries to work on a small news site with a built-in web board, allowing the group of friendsto leave each other notes about the status of the network, to announce where they were havingdinner, or to share some noteworthy news items.The software did not have a name until the day after Dries moved out after graduation. The groupdecided to put the internal website online so they could stay in touch, keep sharing interestingfindings, and narrate snippets of their personal lives. While looking for a suitable domain name, Driessettled for drop.org after he made a typo to see if the name dorp.org was still available. Dorp is theDutch word for village, which was considered a fitting name for the small community.It was only later, in January 2001, that Dries decided to release the software behind drop.org as"Drupal." The purpose was to enable others to use and extend the experimentation platform so thatmore people could explore new paths for development. The name Drupal, pronounced "droo-puhl,"derives from the English pronunciation of the Dutch word "druppel," which means "drop."Source: drupal.org/about/history
