Blackboard… you’re in trouble.

Steve Hargadon just came over to me. “Go look in the session room.”

“How come?” I says.

“Just go look.”

Turns out that the Moodle session is going on in the Open Source session room — and it looks like a Who concert. People sitting and kneeling at every table, and sitting and standing at the back of the room. Not a square foot of empty floor space in the entire room.

There comes a time in any given IT market when the “open source” switch goes off in people’s minds. Education is clearly at that point. And no one is so zealous as the newly converted. It’s a very exciting time.

I wish I’d brought my camera. Oh well.

Blackboard… you’re in trouble.
