Giving kids Chromebooks in schools is like serving them candy for lunch. It’s something you’d do if you were either clueless or hated their guts.

What I’m trying to say is stop normalising surveillance in schools, you absolute muppets.

@aral I wish there were a competitive open source platform with decent device management, that wouldn't cost a ton more than chromebooks and licenses. Unfortunately, papa google has really cornered the market there.


@WillowMist @aral If we look back in the history we all ignored the potential of project which was murdered by vested interests like microsoft lobbying negraponte. OLPC was running Sugar( Fedora UI) and it was packed with educational material.

@pavi @aral My daughter's first PC was Sugar. There was a lot of potential there
