Ozy magazine just ran a profile of me. It’s a generous article, covering my career, my current research, and also my homesteading.
You can see that combination in the opening image/title (photo by my wife, Ceredwyn):
George Lorenzo did a tremendous job of writing here. First, he had to translate my rambling conversation into clear, well-organized prose. George also had to wrangle a seriously wide range of topics into an accessible, 1090-word article. Second, he hunted down two great thinkers about ed tech, Howard Rheingold and Stephen Downes, and coaxed them into adding their kind perspectives (agreed, Stephen; institutions are vital for me).
It’s still strange to be written about and depicted. It’s always defamiliarizing for me, seeing myself represented from the outside, and by professionals. It can be flattering to the point of embarrassment, at times. But it’s also so satisfying to see the ideas I work on move forward into the world.
Thank you Ozy, George, and all.
