Ppl may object that what I am about to offer is too political, but here goes. We - esp. UK HE - had the opportunity to devise an alternative to the Facebook oligopoly. UK HE declined and its IT ppl elected to take the line of least resistance (as with persisting with Microsoft and, in some cases, Blackboard). Surely HE could have produced its own system - or even have adopted Diaspora. But no, UK HE continues to pay the corporate shilling and, for the most part, ignore OpenSource. Rant over.
