I’m a futurist, researcher, writer, speaker, consultant, and teacher, working in the field of how technology transforms education.
Some of the areas I focus on include social media, digital storytelling, mobile devices, gaming, pedagogy, scholarly communication, forecasting, and the future of academia.
In the past I’ve worked in a used bookstore, been an English professor, and helped build a national nonprofit organization. Currently I am the senior fellow for the National Institute for Technology in Liberal Education (NITLE), and also run a consulting firm.
This About page covers several blogs.
Infocult is devoted to exploring the world from an information-centric perspective. This means looking at the shifting admixture of information in print, in digital formats, in minds. Information drives us to topics: cyberculture, intellectual property, computer games, the history of information, education, and anything else that rethinking the world information-centrically requires.
Draculablog is publishing Bram Stoker's novel according to its internal calendar. Every piece of the book is dated by month and day, so we're blogging each item accordingly. It started in early May 2005, and will end with the novel's final entries in November.
I'm doing this partly to explore the novel, which I teach and write about, as well as to continue my research into blogs.
