What the hell?

Ok, I love MIT’s OpenCourseware initiative. I think it’s a cool idea and a great contribution to the commons (my words, not theirs). But this post to Phillip Greenspun’s blog just pisses me off. In the words of Jill Sobule, “why are all our heros so imperfect?”

For your enjoyment, and apologies to Nina Totenberg:

Question: Why did you choose Microsoft Content Management Server? Answer: We read a Gartner Group report that said the Microsoft system was the simplest to use among the commercial vendors and that open-source toolkits weren’t worth considering.

Question: Who did the coding and development for you? Answer: Why cheap-ass coders in India, of course. (paraphrased)
