Educational technologist, productivity evangelist, occasional agitator, 2006 Time Magazine Person of the Year.
Introduction

I am a technologist, recovering classroom teacher, and hopeless optimist who holds an M.Ed. from Harvard University ('06) and a B.A. from the University of Colorado at Boulder (‘04). 

I joined the Academic Technology unit at the University of Colorado at Boulder in June of 2010, and currently serve as the Academic Technology Consultant in the College of Engineering and Applied Science. 

When I'm not trying to save the world one AAU University at a time, I am a professional consultant specializing in Google Apps and Personal Productivity. 

My 2-year-old daughter has probably been to Burning Man more times than you.

It isn't necessary to imagine the world ending in fire or ice. There are two other possibilities: one is paperwork, and the other is nostalgia.

For Sale

UNIQUE! 1976 VW High Top Camper Bus, Solar Enabled

Selling our beloved 1976 VW Bus, as we don’t have the space to give it the proper indoor storage it deserves. Runs great, well-tuned and well-maintained. In desperate need of a paint job before another full year outdoors.

This is a rare high-top camper is modified with a 120w of solar providing 110v AC in the passenger compartment and the batteries topped off. The camping equipment has been removed, but the rear seat still quickly folds down into a bed, along with a slide-out bunk on top. 

The primary issue for sale is the need for a repaint. The previous owner did a poor job both preparing and applying paint, and there was no clear coat. For this reason, the paint is peeling away from seams and edges, as well as where the utility hookups were (poorly) patched. The high-top does not fit in a standard garage, so we are unable to keep it out of the elements. I fear another year or two outdoors without fresh paint will do permanent body damage.

Mechanical
I purchased this bus in 2007 already in running condition, but with a failing rear main seal. I put a new seal and clutch in (correctly, I might add) and there is fewer than 10,000 miles since. Over the previous seven years the bus has received new axles and cv boots, lifter tube seals, plugs/wires/distributer, all fuel lines, had the vaccum lines properly sorted out, and has generally been brought into great working order. I have no idea how many miles are on the bus, but since it is a 1979 motor, I can assume this was a rebuild. There is some noise in one of the hydrolic lifters when it starts, but goes away once it warms. While I’ve done a fair amount of the mechanical work myself, the bus has been in for professional work many times at Wolfsberg Autowerks in Boulder, CO. They are a particularly reputable VW shop that specializes in older vehicles. It was most recently in last summer when a small engine fire required the replacement of many of the top hoses and wires, and I wanted to be sure everything was properly installed and tuned. 

The bus is also due for new tires.

Solar
in 2009 I added 120w (two 60watt panels), inverter, charge controller, secondary marine battery and 110v outlet, mostly because it was cool. Everything is in full working order, and makes this great on camping trips.

Extra parts
I have a significant collection of pieces and parts, including a full engine core (in need of a rebuild) that comes with the bus. This includes slat windows, extra seat belts, and various small mechanical parts I don’t plan to inventory. I’ll throw everything in boxes and include with the sale.

I know there are details I’ve missed, but I hope most are covered in the linked photo album. Please feel free to send questions along and I will respond as I am able. 

While an in-person sale would be great, I would be willing to arrange a wire-transfer. Buyer pays all shipping costs. 

Edit: $10,000

Are you advertising it elsewhere?  This is indeed tempting!  What kind of gas mileage does it get?

Give your daughters capes and they will want to be heroes. Give them tiaras and they will want someone to save them. 

A couple good friends just started a company selling superhero capes for kids! Check it out.

Another celebrated academic named Clay— my NYU colleague, Clay Shirky—takes a very different view: “We have several advantages over the recording industry, of course. We are decentralized and mostly non-profit. We employ lots of smart people. We have previous examples to learn from, and our core competence is learning from the past. And armed with these advantages, we’re probably going to screw this up as badly as the music people did.”

Enjoyed the burgers, and the young people running the register were super friendly and helpful. The fresh buns were a nice touch. I do wish there were some pre-designed burgers to choose from, rather than just a build-your-own menu. When I'm out with three hungry kids I don't really have enough concentration to build anything interesting. Besides, you guys spend all day making burgers and probably eat more than a few yourself. It would be nice if you had a menu of a few of your favorites. Thanks!

A Walsenburg classic! Had the slopper (burger smothered with green chili). Great stop just off the highway for travelers looking for something better than a taco Bell.
