I am much more of a fox than a hedgehog. No, I don’t blog every day, but it’s fair to say that I’m pretty prolific. On this site, you’ll find a boatload of posts on the future of work, higher education, technology, platforms, communication, collaboration, analytics, and other topics. They generally fall into the following buckets: insights, provocations, musings, predictions, and rants. I write more about big ideas than listicles and snackable content. I inject humor often into my posts and freakin’ despise jargon. Click here to see an interactive word cloud and treemap of my posts’ tags.
