ANGEL and Bb Merge... Running Just as Fast as They Can

Yesterday two major players in the Learning Management Systems game merged saying, "Now we have the opportunity to join these strengths together with our Project NG vision for a more flexible and engaging learning platform." Hmmm, I hope they can move much more quickly than they have been, or at least recognize what is REALLY going on and change to take advantage of the intermediaries that are rising from the haze of Moore's Law.

When I see an environment out of them that allows aggregation and flexibility I'll believe they are paying attention. Until then, they are just moving along incrementally giving in to the loudest voices (or largest customers) in education and this may be a bad idea given how much those of us in education are paying attention.
