I just couldn’t resist the Pioneer Patty assignment that the Tokyo ds106ers are rocking out to. How cool to make an assignment that turns a series of innovative computer mavericks into fast food fanatics in order show how much you care. My take on the assignment has Seymour Papert with a bucket of the Colonel’s finest. I took this image of a young Papert with his wireless Turtle robot and replaced the technology with the “patty.” I used Gimp to make the KFC bucket of chicken black and white, I scaled the layer down and added it to the image of Papert. Pretty simple, and too much fun. Scottlo breaks down the origination of this assignment here, and I have to say it has been a blast to see others take a shot at this assignment like Bille Genereux’s Jack Kilby and Joan Shaffer’s Richard Stallman. Awesome!

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.
