Watch the bava blog trailer!
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.
-James D. Calder
@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.
I am Jim Groom

Reclaim Open’s Unconference
With just a little over two months before Reclaim Open happens I’m thankful we had the forethought to add a day before the official event to host an unconference. My first event of this kind was back in 2007 at … Continue reading

The wiki has been made a blog… story at 11!
All I am gonna say right now is that John Maxwell, presenter of “designing a smarter wiki” (see his notes in the Northern Voice wiki) has effectively married the wiki and the blog. Amazing stuff, check this out: is it … Continue reading
So close, but so far?: Mashups, RSS, and chasing the eduglu dream
Beware Sucka: this is a collection of notes, ideas, and brief reflections -so sense and cohesion is not the common denominator here (I guess kinda par for the course) First session at Northern Voice 2007 I attended was Mashup for … Continue reading
Northern Voice: here I come, baby!!!
I am getting really, really fired up now. I am in the Richmond, VA airport -it’s 6:30 am and I ready to go downright crazy with anticipation. So, I’ll quote a video that Andy Rush linked to a while back … Continue reading
