A couple of months ago Ronaldo Lemos contacted me for a brief interview for Brazil’s MTV. We talked about introducing new ideas of media into the classroom, re-thinking traditional nodes of institutional power, as well bringing a sense of one’s mediated cultural identity to what they do. I can’t say I sound all that smart given how eloquent and on point as Columbia university’s Daphne Carr, but I can’t help put find it trippy that I was part of a 15 minute pop culture sound byte on Brazile’s MTV because of a blog post I wrote almost 4 years ago. The web is a very weird and wild place, I do love it so.

    Brilliant!!! I love that whole idea, I see a mashup, substitute ds106 for MTV and macguffins for edupunk and the truth is out there 😉

    Great vid. I met Ronaldo a few years ago, a brilliant and very cool guy.

    All I can think to add is… Brazilia?
