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.
-Antonella Dalla Torre
“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.

A Brute Force Opening
Today’s Daily Create submitted by Kevin Hodgson is a beauty. And it also is a hot tip to cool little bookmarklet tool that prints out a sheet of stills from a YouTube video. Turns out I watched Jules Dassin’s 1947 … Continue reading
Getting the Bava Band Back Together
I took a quick shot at yesterdays Daily Create, which was make your own damn assignment 🙂 I noticed Terry Greene had suggested creating your own band t-shirt, and I was off. T-shirts are my business these days, so I … Continue reading
This is my entry for today’s Daily Create: You look for a representation of DS106 in the world, and you find something close, but [not] quite it. Find something like that. Heck today’s tag #tdc1607 is like that. Almost a … Continue reading
The Duke’s Song of the Selfie
Today’s Daily Create asks you to “Do a Duke Selfie” referring to the most iconic figure of U.S. Westerns: John Wayne. Love him or hate, he has been part of so many of the greatest films of this genre that it’s … Continue reading
My Favorite Watering Hole
I cheated a bit on today’s Daily Create, which asked us to “take a photo of your favorite watering hole.” As soon as I saw the prompt I knew I was going to recycle a short video I took a … Continue reading
The above photo, “Transformative,” was my entry for the first #ds106 Daily Create four years ago. The assignment was a straightforward photo assignment: “Create a photograph that features a repeating pattern.” Simple, suggestive prompts like this were very much in the … Continue reading
Three Faces of Mexico’s Robin Hoods
Today’s Daily Create features Robin Hood, a testament to the dearth of anything resembling a Western culture in Britain. Poor bastards! The West was definitely not won in green tights. Regardless, the whole steal from the rich give to the … Continue reading
Bring me the Head of Joaquín Murieta
Today’s Daily Create is pretty awesome. It provides an old gold map of the Oregon Territory published in 1844 via the David Rumsey Map Collection, and asks you to pick a spot on the map that would provide the setting … Continue reading
A Fistful of GIFs
The Western 106 force is strong with me these days. I even watched John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) last night, but more on that in another post. For now I’ll be talking about today’s Daily Create which asks us to make GIFs from … Continue reading
After seeing today’s Daily Create priming folks to do some research for the coming Western-themed ds106, I got the urge to write about a particular Western (although not a Spaghetti Western) that rules: Nicholas Ray’s 1954 Western dream vision Johnny Guitar. It has got … Continue reading
