« Insipiring speech about Racism and Obama | Main | Upcoming Interview about EDU 2.0 »

I notice the founder of moodle got a little defensive in your previous post about the stats. The lines of code vs capabilities is impressive, but you may be missing the most important stat...that of security. There are a lot of security vulnerabilities in that 1.5 million lines of Moodle code that Martin doesn't want to talk about. See the Moodle Security tag at www.moodleus.org for more information.

Good luck with edu2.0

Hi Steve,

Thanks for your email! It's certainly true that the more lines of code there is to manage, the more opportunities there are for security issues. We extended the Rails framework to add a nice security layer that is simple to use. For example, to prevent anyone except the teacher of a class from performing an action, you can just put the word "teacher" before the methods.
