    [eLgg] Making Software, Making Money
    The project to which he refers, of course, is ELGG. It was crowded even when ELGG launched. Here's the question to ask: would ELGG have had any measure of success had it been subscription-based software? As open source software goes, ELGG is almost unique in its intent to create a revenue stream for its producer. Why not?

    [eLgg] Explode
    Now - yes, it's distributed, in that I don't need to use specific software (such as ELGG) to create my friends network. Nothing against ELGG, it's great, but I use my own software. It allows me to join networks where ELGG used to cut me off. My comments to Dave Tosh on the launch of Explode. Pretty nifty. Your call.

    [eLgg] Product Vendor Blogs - Where are They?
    If you look on my link roll, there's one from Articulate, elgg, ummm. Another thought just occurred to me based on my last post Innovation Geography Based and Innovation in eLearning. Ben Werdmuller posted his comments on this Does location matter for web startups? I'm already running out. Where's a blog from Saba, SumTotal? Others?

    [eLgg] Education, Technology and Myth
    This resulted in a system that is very different from Moodle, which developed with constructivist theory specifically in mind, and even more from ELGG, which is probably the closest thing we have today to a connectivist application. So I need to look for precision in order to draw out the fallacy. argue that both statements are true. will be?)

    [eLgg] Where are open source learning applications?
    Good post by Harold Jarche - Where are open source learning applications? First, open-source generally succeeds once an application domain is fairly well understood and the feature sets are relatively more stable. So, we should naturally expect to see open source solutions emerge where we see relatively stable feature sets.
