Stephen Downes points to a long thread of comments at Slashdot responding to the recent court decision in favor of Blackboard’s patent suit with Desire2Learn.

We have far too much experience with that “horrible design and interface” around here since our overly-large school district has been paying big bucks to Blackboard for more than five years.
