openness. Once freedom is embraced, it matters surprisingly little
which exact software is adopted.
Another company that is doing pretty well (including in the education
field) is RainCityStudios.com - a Drupal shop out of Vancouver. Again,
the concepts would map across to WordPress and WPMU very easily - set
up infrastructure, sell services, support and consulting around the
software, and build a community of people and companies who work with
you. Great stuff.
