My name is Tim Clarke, and I live in a small suburb of Philadelphia (population: ~3,250) in Montgomery County. I work at Muhlenberg College where, among other things, I support a Domain of One's Own initiative. For various reasons, I have avoided maintaining my own blog, but this site is my effot to work publicly and to write honestly and to share more stuff. Thank you for visiting!

I have a MLS from the University of Maryland, College Park, and a MS in Instructional Technology from St. Joseph's University in Philadelphia. I found my professional footing at the Digital Pedagogy Lab 2016 Institute. I don't bash students. I don't bash faculty. Anything that begins The future of ... makes me drowsy.

I think we all learn all our lives and I find that fascinating. I love libraries and archives. I support all things open [access|education|pedagogy|geo|source] and will chat about them any time you like. I'm also a mediocre 'grow dammit' gardener, so advice about plants is always sincerely welcomed.

I can be reached for work-related stuff via email at timothyclarke [AT] muhlenberg [DOT] edu. For non-work stuff, via email at tim [AT] theclarkes [DOT] name, and my Twitter handle is @floatingtim.

On Top
All this new stuff goes on top
turn it over, turn it over
wait and water down
from the dark bottom
turn it inside out
let it spread through
Sift down even.
Watch it sprout.
A mind like compost.
