LXer: Away From a Standard of Openness

Published at LXer:

I am, as you may have noticed, unequivocally in favor of the adoption of free and open source software by schools and governments. I have also spent a considerable portion of my career in ed-tech creating tools that support interoperability via open standards like RDF, iCalendar and SIF. Open source and open standards are two good things. So I have found it difficult to explain precisely why it is a bad idea for K-12 Open Technologies, a recent intitiative by CoSN, IBM, and the Hewlett Foundation to lump them together and promote the two concepts as "open technologies."
