Repo Edtech

It was pretty cool to see this recent post by Adeline Koh on ProfHacker sharing her experience with Reclaim Hosting. I particularly liked this bit:

It’s been four months since I’ve switched to Reclaim Hosting and I cannot say better things about the service and the people running it.

Tim and I aren’t “businessmen” (though I joke about it), we’re edtechs who have an intimate understanding of higher ed. We have a strong sense of where technology and teaching converge in interesting ways, and remain committed to augmenting what we’ve helped build at UMW and share it far and wide.

We don’t advertise. We don’t use our interface to play psychological games. We don’t hate-sell through fear and uncertainty as so many in the web hosting world do. We don’t and won’t take VC funding. We won’t be bought, which means we won’t sell you out.  And while we do have the best service and cheapest prices around, more than anything we have an ethos that is rooted in the vision of helping people understand how the web works and use that knowledge to return teaching and learning to the scale of the individual—the only way it can be done right. That is what education is, and that is what we are all about.

    Yes, this is exactly what I’m talking about–vision, ethos, core values, and so on.

    Go, go, go!

    Talk about a lattice of coincidence – I once had a dream about making a gif of Otto pouring out the beer in the office.
