I'm Karen Fasimpaur.

I work in the field of educational technology, working with schools to integrate technology. I have also worked in textbook publishing and software development and have taught school.

I have been looking for a creative (non-work related) project and have also been thinking about contributing more free open content to the world. Now seems like a good time. This also seems like a better use of time than Twitr or SL.
