is an ongoing conversation about media of all kinds ...
Generations from now, they won't call it the Internet anymore. They'll just say, "I logged on to the Jim Groom this morning.
Everything Jim Groom touches is gold. He's like King Midas, but with the Internet.
My understanding is that an essential requirement of the internet is to do whatever Jim Groom asks of you while you're online.

@jimgroom is the Billy Martin of edtech.
My 3yr old son is VERY intrigued by @jimgroom's avatar. "Is he a superhero?" "Well, yes, son, to many he is."
Jim Groom is a fiery man.

“Reverend” Jim “The Bava” Groom, alias “Snake Pliskin” is a charlatan and a fraud, a self-confessed “used car salesman” clawing his way into the glamour of the education technology keynote circuit via the efforts of his oppressed minions at the University of Mary Washington’s DTLT and beyond. The monster behind educational time-sink ds106 and still recovering from his bid for hipster stardom with “Edupunk”, Jim spends his days using his dwindling credibility to sell cheap webhosting to gullible undergraduates and getting banned from YouTube for gross piracy.
I am Jim Groom

This above image published on Shorpy’s archival photo blog back in 2007 just came across my radar thanks to UMW über-librarian Jack Bales. Below is the description: June 30, 1922. Washington policeman Bill Norton measuring the distance between knee and suit at … Continue reading
I’m still decompressing from Faculty Academy, it was a very interesting conference this year with a lot to unpack. I’ll be posting a number of my afterthoughts here over the next week, but in the meantime I have to say … Continue reading
I have this movie poster hanging in my living room, it’s one of my all time favorite posters—though admittedly not such a great film. I particularly like the tag line as it relates to the artistic detail in the poster. … Continue reading

Cronenberg on Warhol
Another gem from my Ubuweb video feed. Just found this series of audio files that feature David Cronenberg curating an Andy Warhol exhibition at the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto back in 2006. Here’s a nice quote from Cronenberg … Continue reading
