Michael Feldstein took so long getting to his point I thought he was trying to sell me something. But no. His main point is that Instructure proved successful in the LMS market by helping shift the locus of decision-making from computer services and IT departments to the faculty who would actually use the system. There's merit in that observation. He wraps this discussion in an argument to the point that people should be wary about missing patterns or trends they weren't expecting. In other words, people should get out more and see things from different points of view. There's merit in this point as well.
