I wasn't going to post on Jim's Edupunk stuff because although I think it's spot-on, it made me feel slightly left out, and too corporate (Edupunk's don't concern themselves with things like business models). I'm not radical enough to be part of it. This was a purely personal reaction, I applaud the notion of remixing, DIY edtech, openness, etc. I sit on things like steering committees, produce papers and write research bids after all. I may not be the Man, but I'm on nodding terms with him.
But then I watched Tony's presentation on publishing, data and copyright and felt positively inspired. I don't use this word lightly (except when talking about football) – genius.
So, I offer up the following as a homage to all the edupunkers out there. Such an obvious Hirst rip-off may be the equivalent of a middle-aged man wearing leather trousers, but even if I'm not an edupunk, like original punk, we all benefit from the changes they make to the scene. Enjoy:
