I am much more of a fox than a hedgehog. Although, I don’t blog every day with my new professor job, it’s fair to say that I’m pretty prolific. On this site alone, you’ll find a boatload of posts on education, Big Data, technology, management, communications, platforms, analytics, and other topics. They generally fall into the following buckets: insights, provocations, musings, predictions, and rants. I prefer writing about big ideas than listicles and snackable content. Finally, I inject humor often into my posts and despise jargon.
