If you don’t know Jim, he’s one of the first and longest-running edubloggers, having written at Bavatuesdays for more than a decade. There you can find his thoughts on the intersection of education and technology, with a strong helping of culture high and low. At the University of Mary Washington Jim inspired the edupunk movement, and then invented and taught the famous digital storytelling counter-MOOC DS106. He also kicked off the Domain of One’s Own movement. And now he’s moved to Italy, where he helps run the innovative and excellent Reclaim Hosting company. A brilliant man, a ferocious innovator, a generous collaborator, and a good friend.
