Cat Fight in the Learning 2.0 Blogosphere

leave a comment »

A small cat fight between Dave Tosh and Stephen Downes has erupted over some comments about open source.

Aside from the fact that this is a bit of a cat fight… My feelings on the topic are that open source software can succeed and work, but there’s no such thing as open source support – and this is what Curverider provides. (Well, in the general sense of the word there is open source support: mailing lists, discussions, etc. When I say support, I mean the type of support your director/manager will want to purchase.) None of this is any different than the slew of companies that provide consulting and support services for Moodle or Sakai.

Get over it gents. The mixed model works. Let’s get on with the real work at hand – making things better.
