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 higher education, Big Data, technology, management, communications, platforms, analytics, and other topics.

Finally, I inject humor often into my posts and despise jargon.
