I'm tempted to wisecrack that Harvard professors need something super simple, but I think actually that this software package that helps them build personal and project-oriented web sites is a good idea. OpenScholar, which is available as open source, is in version 2.0 now. Professors can "build an online home for their 'CV, bio, publications, blogs, announcements, links, image galleries, class materials,' and even submit publications to online repositories, such as Google Scholar." There is a caveat: "Before a prof can start using OpenScholar, someone on his/her IT staff will need to install the software on their university's servers." But don't panic - looking at the code I see it's based on a Drupal core, which means a relatively straightforward PHP install.
