Thanks Miguel. You are one of those I will depend on to get me up to speed on Project Share. Technically I consider myself neutral on the subject until learning more but admit to healthy (I hope) skepticism that might have also been reflected in your tweet response today.

Key terms that come to mind are "Proprietary", "Investment" and "Focus". You mentioned (on Twitter) the first two and the third is my big question mark. "Proprietary", as in how much of it will we buy or create and how much of it will we rent or borrow. "Investment" as in not just dollars deposited (from our accounts or others) but time, talent, efforts and the return thereon. "Focus", as in how much of our prior investments and expectations in projects such as Moodle might be diverted, neglected or forfeited.

On the other hand, the institutional depth and initiative poised for deployment in support of features and services like some we've long been trying to gain traction with can only be a good thing, right? I guess I'm just looking for insight as to which horse to bet on and which one to ride?
