the technology behind it is Drupal which is a CMS (Content Management
System) done in php and mysql (or other sqls).

Other web oriented CMS include tikiwiki, phpnuke, type3, mambo (now called
jumla), etc... 

Rev can be used to interface to the cms' sql and create stories or import
information for example. Lots more is possible though...

cheers
