    It’s a good thing I have that Swiss Army knife with a flash drive.

  2. Joe says:

    Jim, you’re out of your goddamn mind.

    I love it.

  3. Hello, Jim,

    In the next episode, I want to see Blackboard manuals all run through and mounted on stakes…

    Great stuff — just don’t go all Mel on us and get pulled over in Malibu 🙂

    Great video!

    But how to survive when the Web 2.0 companies crash? Its not an unlikely scenario even if I share your opinion.

  5. Barbara says:

    Ah, Jim, brilliant, just brilliant. Now you have to leave the army altogether and join us renegades on the outside of them there barbed-wire-topped walls.

    @Joe and Mikhail:
    I want you two with me went it all goes down, so get your travel bags, we’re going into the woods!

    It is for that very reason that I went easy on the Mel, but damn if he isn;t my hero in Mad max and The Road Warrior. I mean that metal brace on his leg rules, doesn’t it?

    You’re right, there’s a lot of tongue and cheek in this one, and actually it is a part of a larger presentation. I guess if it all goes to hell, Flickr and YouTUbe may not truly be high on my list, but that’s why I push so hard for WordPress, because I “own” that one 🙂

    There’s a lot here inspired by your recent moves and posts. I kind think of you as the forerunner of edtech surivivalists, and the character in the video is certainly channeling a whole hell of a lot of bgblogging. And to be fair, it was all Brian Lamb’s idea, he says something and I just run out and do it, I’m truly just an automaton with broken glasses.

  7. Brian says:

    Go to ground you crazy bastard…

  8. well done! the broken glasses were a nice touch.

    Given Adrian Sannier’s Campus Technology 2008 keynote speech, it is a definite possibility we’ll all be teaching and learning in the outland in the future!

  9. Shannon says:

    You are crazy and I love it.
    Looking forward to advice on how to survive in these scary times 🙂

  10. Alec Couros says:

    You are the man Jim! Brilliant!

  11. Jim, you magnificent bastard. I watched the video this morning, and then again more times than I care to admin. You are fucking brilliant, Reverend.

    I am SOOOO looking forward to the next episodes. I’m picturing The Reverend, alone, with nothing but his wits (and a pack of smokes) to keep him alive. Like man vs. wild, but with the stakes set so much higher…

  12. Jen says:


    PS Please finish them all before 10/17 so I can show them in my presentation for this

  13. Keira says:

    It’s road warrior, how can i not comment? love, keira

  14. Reverend says:

    You’re all too kind, this is the excess of idiocy that I made fun of in my previous post. But you can;t live a wrong life rightly, so why not? Thanks you crazy freaks, but the apocalypse is upon us, I hope you’re all preparing accordingly.

  15. watching this again….I am reminded of the librarian Mr. Atoz [A to Z] from the “All Our Yesterdays” episode of Star Trek, TOS.

    There’s also a little Henry Bemis in there from the “Time Enough At Last” episode of The Twilight Zone w/ respect to the broken glasses.

    Plenty of gothic fodder for Infocult!!!

    Awesome. Just awesome. I can’t wait for the next episode!

  18. Matt says:

    Way to live deep and suck out all the marrow of life, Jim. I love it.

    “I went to open source because I wished to live deliberately, to front only the essential facts of life, and see if I could not learn what it had to teach, and not, when I came to die, discover that I had not lived. . . . . “

    Just what I needed to liven up my morning!
