  1. Nicely done. I have been looking for a word to call the movement I have always felt a part of, and I believe that I have not only found it, but that I have also found a new way to find others who want nothing but to create. Honestly, I thought there was something wrong with me for just wanting to sit down with people and create learning for others all day. But from the heroes that you have mentioned I don’t think that there is. The term guerrila professional development may be the most beautiful one I have heard all year. Thank you.

  2. Even my ego is not prepared to be mentioned in the likes of these wonderful individuals by someone like yourself. Thanks for your post D’Arcy.

  3. Eduglu might be a McGuffin, but it is a pretty cool ideal of what I see as being some of the core edupunk values – gather the good work and ideas that are already out there, mash it up then share the results. Rip, mix, share. It gives a goal to work towards.

  4. Dude, you are so edupunk, it is barely needs to be mentioned. For all you give away freely in terms of technology sharing, pushing ideas, very punk indeed.

    I often tell people that my secret for success to technology is… “Do what d’Arcy does”

  5. I don’t think I belong in the company of these amazing examples of EDUPUNK, but I am thrilled to be there. Thank you for including me. You are the perfect example of it. I’m so lucky to have been able to pull you into so much of what I do here on my campus. You rock!

  6. When it comes to DIY culture one should probably go a bit deeper and further than to the “punk”.

    People composing and singing their own music, dancing their own dances and making their own things is not really anything new. Actually it is pretty human and universal.

    For this reason I do not consider “punk” to be a great example of DIY.

    The media-technology-industry has made us mindless consumers and whenever there is once in a while wakening “hmm…why don’t we do something ourselves?” the same industry provides us with some great DYI-tools (electric guitar, DJ turntable and OLPC-XO) to keep us quiet and consuming.

    Can I already buy somewhere some edupunk stickers? They would look awesome in my laptop!

  7. I do believe I was sitting directly to your right when you took Jim’s picture and in the crowd when you took Brian’s picture … and all of these folks are in my google reader. So, does that make me an “edupunk” groupie? If so, guilty as charged … I’m a fan girl of all the edupunks on your list! I even wrote a paper for school about Alec, but I’m too nervous to let him read it 🙂 I guess I’ll stick with “edunerd” when I refer to myself ..

  8. D … how I make *your* list is a mystery to me. I’ve been following your lead for years now and only hope that you keep blazing new trails. Thank you for thinking of placing me on a list with so many of the people I think about as the leaders in our space (I know, no real leaders, just a community) … edupunk or not, the fact that we have all worked so damn hard to spin up a true community of practice around disrupting institutions as it relates to teaching and learning with (or without) technology is a great thing. We all owe so much to each other and I can’t thank you enough for the work you do.

    But I guess a real edupunk would demand to be taken off a list so as to not draw attention to their efforts 😉 You rock D’Arcy!
