“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.

I created yet another design assignment for ds106 because I’m just that good. This one is based on the Read poster campaign that started in 1985. Here is the description: Since 1985, the American Library Association (ALA) has tried to … Continue reading
