I heard back from Guinness about being the World’s Tallest Librarian

March 20th, 2013

Back in November I submitted a claim to Guinness to check if I was truly the World’s Tallest Librarian. It turns out that they don’t track that record. Here’s a quote from their email:

Guinness World Records is in no way associated with the activity relating to your record proposal and we in no way endorse this activity. If you choose to proceed with this activity then this is will be of your own volition and at your own risk.

So, I can continue to be the World’s Tallest Librarian; I just do so at my own risk.

We’ll see if I’m truly the tallest librarian in the world.

I just submitted the claim to the Guinness Book of World Records. Now we wait four weeks to see if they’ll even adjudicate it.

My guest post is up on the Penumbra blog.

February 14th, 2012

In January, I had a short story published in Penumbra emagazine. They asked me to write about writing, which may seem redundant at first, but it helped me put into words why I write and hopefully will help others. Here’s a link to the post.

A teacher today pointed out that I haven’t really talked much about what I have out there, so here’s another link to the story published by Cast of Wonders. (You can also get it for free on iTunes by clicking here.)

Are you interested in mobile learning, whether it’s on a tablet, a phone, or something else? AZK12 is hosting Mobile 2012 April 11-13.

Jaime Casap
Eric Marcos

I’ve attended a conference with Tony before and chatted with him. He definitely knows his stuff. And the Wozniak last name should sound familiar in connection to Apple…

Update to the My Books page

January 1st, 2012

I added a link on the My Books page to one of my current short stories, Rust. It was picked up by Cast of Wonders and is read phenomenally by Graeme Dunlop. It’s a free download, so definitely go check it out.

I have another short story that was picked up by a magazine coming out this month that I will tell you more about once it is available for purchase.

New page: Technology in Education

September 15th, 2011

I don’t know why I didn’t do this before. I use a lot of different websites with many different teachers, so I’m going to dedicate a page on this site to organizing all of those sites.

The new page is called ‘Technology in Education‘.

It will be a growing list, so check back frequently.

Gearing up for part two of inventory

May 31st, 2011


Today I tackle a closet that hasn’t been completely organized in over a decade. No hyperbole.


May 23rd, 2011


It’s going to be a long couple of days. I have my laptop hooked up to my scanner. That should make it go a little faster.
