Criticism of the Mozilla Open Badges project. Kerri Lemoie argues that Mozilla doesn't even have any staff assigned to the project and disbanded the team more than a years ago. "Not only was the backpack abandoned — technically put on 'maintenance mode'— any real initiatives and plans for what the backpack was supposed to be were essentially put on hold since the spring of 2013." She outlines a list of the things that are needed: "true ownership of the mission, road map and funding of Open Badges... a truly independent alliance so that the initiative can be objectively supported and funded... a new, modern infrastructure for Open Badges."
