Domain of One’s Own: Notes from the Trailing Edge

Jim Groom, Oct 18, 2013
Commentary by Stephen Downes

Jim Groom was not at EDUCAUSE this week - he was selling out presenting at a TEDx conference in Puerto Rico, talking about "a web of one's own" and name-dropping “trailing edge” technologies and the open web that Jon Udell blogged about last week. Udell writes, "my friends in that field [education] led a rebellion against learning management systems and sought out their own innovation toolkits: BlueHost,, MediaWiki, WordPress." I do wonder who he means. Alan Levine also references the Udell article as he prepares "a proposal for a Shuttleworth Foundation fellowship; below are bits or bypass by waffling and go to the drafty draft." I think the work of Jim Groom and Alan Levine stands well enough on its own, and is well worth supporting on its own merits, and doesn't need to reference tech journalists or TEDx to succeed. More from Brian Lamb.
