Sakai Tools – Inside/Outside the Box

Some interesting sakai-ux discussion tied in with thoughts I’ve been having recently related to native vs. integrated services and content in portal-type environments… where do the lines get drawn, and how do you handle horizontal services?

http://www.theregister.co.uk/2007/03/12/indian_students_told_to_talk/ The Indian Institute of Technology (IIT) in Mumbai (Bombay) will turn off hostel students’ free internet access from 11pm until 12.30pm. Authorities hope the decision will get students talking to each other again. Mumbai has 13 undergraduate hostels. The really interesting part of this for me is that they’ve decided that 11PM – 12:30PM ...
