Who Am I?
I used to look like that. I actually tried to go a bit of a Forrest Gump look when I ran my first, and so far only, marathon.
I grew up near Washington DC in the town (Manassas, VA) that produced two civil war battles, David Robinson, and the John and Lorena Bobbitt incident.
Sports were always a big part of life as I played just about everything available before settling in on lacrosse during my high school and college years.
I’ve lived in Hawaii twice. Once on the small, rural island of Molokai for nearly 6 years and once in Honolulu for almost 3 years while working towards my PhD (still in progress).
Even as a terrible traditional student, I have always been fascinated with learning and new technology. Due to finances I have been in the late adopter/laggard realm of the Diffusions of Innovations scale of technology for most of my life.
I have an M.Ed. that was earned fully online where I graduated with high distinction. I’m now in the stage between my coursework and dissertation for my PhD in Learning, Design, and Technology in hopes that I’ll start the research and writing for my dissertation in 2018.
Much like this blog, my dissertation topic is one of possibilities brought about by technology as I’ll be studying the experience of homeless persons trying to participate in free Massively Open Online Courses (MOOCs).
What Is ThePossiblityOf… Supposed To Be?
I want people to be able to understand how they can learn about anything.
If I’m successful, this will become a resource that people use to figure out what it is they want, how to find the best tools available to help them develop in those areas, and the best ways to implement what they’ve learned to improve themselves and the world around them. In addition to original content, I’ll be producing reviews of media and interviews with relevant persons.
The blog will be broken down into the following categories:
I intend to monetize the blog early and often, quite possibly having it as my main source of income at some time in the future if it scratches an itch for enough people. Affiliate marketing through Amazon and hopefully Google AdSense will be used. Here is my full disclosure.
Now that this thing has snuck it’s way out into the world, I hope to begin hearing back from people and will do my best to respond. Posts will be published every Wednesday.
