Living up to their name

Blackboard is certainly living up to their new nick name of the Blackweb.

Harold Jarche says it for me:
The Blackboard patent may become a defining moment for learning technologies. LetÂ’s use this as an opportunity to cast off the classroom and course metaphors..
It hurts though that no one wants to refer to my long (perhaps) broken record of saying the same thing. So if this patent awarded to Blackboard is the last straw, perhaps you'd like to look elsewhere for everything you need to teach and learn online.

Stephen gives us a round up.

I heard it first from Darcy through his Gnomes comic.

I'd agree, the Blackboard patent 'stuff' seems to have an edge to it?
