Članak u Wired-u prenosi priču o sukobu koji se mesecima odvija između Stokholma, koji je izbacio platformu za pristup obrazovnom sistemu punom bagova, kojom korisnici nisu bili zadovoljni, i zajednice, koja je napravila bolji softer otvorenog koda. U mesecima od objavljivanja te aplikacije, grad Stokholm je na različite načine pokušavao da je ugasi, uvodeći mere kojima otežava pristup podacma, i na kraju podižući slučaj na nivo istrage o narušavanju sajber bezbednosti. Ipak, zahvaljujući posvećenosti tima koji je razvijao aplikaciju, koji je rešio da se odupre svim preprekama, kao i pritisku javnosti, trenutno deluje da su vlasti promenile stav, i da sada razmatraju načina na koje sadržaj platforme može da se „licencira” aplikaciji.

Iz članka:

The Skolplattform, which has cost more than 1 billion Swedish Krona, SEK, ($117 million), has failed to match its initial ambition. Parents and teachers have complained about the complexity of the system—its launch was delayed, there have been reports of project mismanagement, and it has been labelled an IT disaster. The Android version of the app has an average 1.2 star rating.

Landgren teamed up with fellow developers and parents Johan Öbrink and Erik Hellman, and the trio hatched a plan. They would create an open source version of the Skolplattform and release it as an app that could be used by frustrated parents across Stockholm. Building on Landgren’s earlier work, the team opened Chrome’s developer tools, logged into the Skolplattform, and wrote down all the URLs and payloads. They took the code, which called the platform’s private API and built packages so it could run on a phone—essentially creating a layer on top of the existing, glitchy Skolplattform.

In the eight months that followed, Stockholms Stad, or the City of Stockholm, attempted to derail and shut down the open source app. It warned parents to stop using the app and alleged that it might be illegally accessing people’s personal information. Officials reported the app to data protection authorities and, Landgren claims, tweaked the official system’s underlying code to stop the spin-off from operating at all.

Bio sam u fazonu to je sigurno pravio Deloitte, Accenture ili tako neka konsultantska kuća, ispostavlja se da ne...
