Carolyn FooteAn avid technology user and Dan Pink fan, Carolyn is a librarian at a large suburban high school in Austin Texas, where she describes her job as a web-brarian, since much of what she does is online. She has written several articles on bringing technology into libraries, and has recently redesigned her library space to be more student friendly.

When not busy at work Jim loves to spend time at his cabin in the woods of central PA. He's a lucky man.

Eric Grant is a futurist and an edupreneur who believes that one of the best ways to reform education is to develop alternatives outside of the system.
