Edupunk, as Jim Groom says, was a moment. It represented an alternative to the locked-down learning management system approach to education characterized by the big LMS companies like Blackboard. I like how Jim Groom uses the occasion of answering some questions about Edupunk to play with video technology and to " explore some of my live video capabilities with the new rig." It includes some nice clips with Brian Lamb from a mockumentary about it from five years ago. We perhaps lost some of the spirit of Edupunk in the early days of the pandemic. It's a shame students couldn't have been greeted with the 'Summer of Oblivion' rather than 4-hour Zoom lectures, but strict adherence to the program was demanded. Maybe people will find a second wind. If nothing else, "Narrate your process, people!"
