“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.

The 90s are a weird decade for me. I was in my twenties just about the entire time almost evenly split between Los Angeles and NYC, or undergraduate and graduate school. When I look back, it’s not in anger, but … Continue reading
I like quoting movies (often butchering the lines) and repeating stupid sayings ad nauseam, things like “On a scale of 1 to 10,” “Big Fan,” “#4life,” etc. I tend to denature these terms. None of them are really unique to me, I … Continue reading

I edited my original post with the link to the YouTube video to my presentation for the DMLL EXPO 2016 two months ago. I was particularly excited to hear that YouTube had flagged the video for copyright violation. They are … Continue reading
At the end of April Brian Lamb and I spent three days on the ground at Coventry University. We were cordially invited by the great Daniel Villar-Onrubia given his interest in an EDUCAUSE Review article we wrote back in 2014 titled “Reclaiming … Continue reading
