Many call themselves “futurists” — Bryan actually knows how to do it.

“Hardest working man in edtech!”
Gotta love @BryanAlexander‘s ability to catalyze a conversation without leaning on hyperbole or triggers.

Ted Kaczynski has died. I have many thoughts and some stories. 1: He and I both spent years at the University of Michigan, although not at the same time. I took several classes in the building where he once taught. … Continue reading
Vast firestorms across a series of Canadian provinces sent huge plumes of smoke aloft, as I noted on Sunday. Those clouds have since drifted south, across the international boundary, and down across several American states, including the one where my … Continue reading
Today is a good day for me. My new book, Universities on Fire: Higher Education in the Climate Crisis, is now published. It’s my Johns Hopkins University monograph on how colleges and universities might be impacted by climate change for … Continue reading
