I am much more of fox than hedgehog. No, I don’t blog every day, but 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, platforms, communications, 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. Finally, I inject humor often into my posts and despise jargon. Click here to see an interactive word cloud and heat map of my posts’ tags.
