Hey! My name is Ian O’Byrne.

I am an educator, researcher, and speaker. My work centers on teaching, learning, and technology. I study literacy practices of individuals in online, and hybrid spaces.

This website is my digital commonplace book. This is inspired by the website philosophy & structure developed by Chris Aldrich.

I use this website as my primary hub for online presence and communication. I’m trying to follow the tenets of the IndieWeb movement in owning all of my own data and publishing on my own site and syndicating elsewhere (POSSE).

On this website you’ll find a trail of my digital breadcrumbs as I consume, curate, and create. I’ll archive all of the things I’ve read online. These could be bookmarks to visit, videos to watch, photos, and quotes that inspired me.

My main website is where you’ll find all of my longer blog posts, videos, & images. You should subscribe to my weekly newsletter to stay on top of everything.

I am social. Feel free to contact me.
