Open Source as a Counter Movement?

Today I had to do a small presentation about OpenSource for a university course. Slides are online. I did not invest much time, hopefully I will have more time in July for writing the document. But from my impression my presentations was one of the better ones (At least I had slides, I didn’t read everything from paper and I didn’t overrun much). And I really have to bang my head on the desk, when students, who have been studying for at least three years, state in a presentation on the topic “Economy and Internet Regulation” that everyone should buy at No matter how bad the presentations were, I bet 90% of the students will pass the course.
Courses at the IGW are such a waste of time and resources.
