It looks as if our open letter to President Obama isn’t alone. A recent post on Ars Technica kindly points us to another open letter from a group of open source vendors and advocates calling for the new administration to consider open source software in government IT initiatives and infrastructure.
Of course, we’ve been thinking about open source software’s power and potential in education for quite a while. Our recently described vision for educational technology depends vitally upon open source materials and the value of community input. That’s why we release our software as open source and invite you to visit our source code library to download any or all of it, examine it for yourself and – we hope – submit your own ideas, suggestions or improvements.
