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.

“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.

vinylcast #26: Yaz’s Upstairs at Eric’s
Did some blogging in the morning about some of the experimentation I did over the weekend getting my classic gaming streaming rig in order, and figured it would be fun to stream an album on #ds106radio. I spent some time this weekend cleaning up some vinyl I had bought in Trento that was pretty beat up, and Yaz’s Upstairs at Eric‘s sounded much better than when I bought it last year. Still not perfect, but a thorough cleaning definitely made a difference. I loved this album as a love-struck teenager, and I thought it was the height of experimentation. Plus, Allison Moyet’s voice is hard to deny. This is a European pressing so it has the song “Tuesday” on side 2, which is not on US and Canadian versions. Those versions have “Situation” which was their single in North America, and I learned when doing this vinylcast that Yaz did not want to have Situation put forth by the label as their North American single.
