Jon Bischke, serial founder of startups in the education space and currently entrepreneur in residence at Battery Ventures gave me the opportunity to interview him via email.
As he is one of the thought leaders in the hackedu space, you should follow
Jon Bischke on Twitter and learn about his thoughts on the future of higher education, the Reputation Graph and more at JonBischke.com.
There’s life in the old dog yet! After over seven months of silence on the eduFire blog Jon Bischke gave a short statement today saying that he is
[...] excited to announce that eduFire is now a part of Camelback Education Group, a higher education holding company based in Phoenix, Arizona.
What does this mean? We don’t know yet.

Jon Bischke offered a new business model for content publishers on his personal blog. It’s about creating new services like better filtering, personalisation etc. The last sentences were:
Humor us content producers. Start the revolution this time rather than being a victim of it.
This is a good read, as always so you should check it out.
Today the NYT published and article about
Cengage Learning, one of the America’s largest textbook publishers. They came up with a quite revolutionary idea.
I was a bit quiet the last days and as some of you might know by now, this is the sign I am working on something new ;).
Today I finally launched a project that has been in the back of my head for quite a while: EDUKWEST on the search for better education.
It is a series of interviews with people involved in the education revolution. Founders, CEOs, teachers, content writers and all the other great people involved.
Last sunday eduFire.com was hosting the second eduConference under the headline “Turning Teachers into Rockstars”. This great and inspirational meeting was followed up by a very interesting and even a bit frightening presentation of Jon Bischke, CEO of eduFire.com who talked about “ Connected Consumership“.
