We must learn to create systems that have lasting value, work for real human beings, software that creates freedom instead of consuming it. Software that embodies the values of the academy. I Commented: I wonder if it would be better to have a general open-source track that teaches students about open-source and requires them to be an active member of some project. Forcing them to focus on whatever project ends up homed at a university seems a bit "off". (Though it's certainly simpler.)
