Justing getting back home to the shores of the North Atlantic and wanted to be sure & make some notes before too much time passes.
This gathering was a brilliantly organized node hosting a large portion of my favourite people & practitioners.
So many great memories:
Witnessed a brilliant keynote from Martha Burtis – thoughtful as always with insights and provocations to consider and rise to the significant challenges we face as educators in online spaces. Read her transcript and listen to the recording of her keynote w/ questions from the floor as heard on #ds106radio
Witnessed the strong mojo going on at Muhlenberg College. Tim Clarke is a model academic librarian bringing passion, drive, and passion to bear in his work. Not only was his Domains Fair table on point, but the zine I got at his table revealed I won a prize! I won all the fixings needed to create a LibraryBox or Piratebox + more. Most definitely going to flex the gear and write about it. Muhlenberg also raised the stakes with Lora Taub-Pervizpour and Jordan Noyes with #domainsresist and their great work with sscommons.org. Big fav among the SSCommons is the Street Art Graphics collection.
As a role playing gamer from wayback, Keegan’s great work with http://goblin.education/ caught my interest and attention. So much potential and value in role playing games for teaching and learning yet to be tapped – really happy to see Keegan doing great work with it.

Heard Tom Woodward preach the gospel of his SubGenius-inspired #wordpress mojo
Huge props to the ReclaimHosting folks for a fantastic job gathering this group of educators, designers, and technicians to share work, ideas, and visions of better futures.
