Goodbye Small School Big Tech

In April 2010, Danny Silva and I sat down and recorded the first episode of the Small School Big Tech Podcast. The premise was simple, two educators talking about our experiences implementing technology in our school district. Along the way we chronicled our 1:1 roll out in real time and got to meet and talk with a bunch of awesome educators. Danny dropped off in 2011 when he left for CUE and Mike Magboo stepped in to pick up the slack. Five years and 66 episodes in, Small School Big Tech had run it’s course. I posted the last episode on March 18th, 2015.

Since that last episode, I’ve kept the Small School Big Tech website and domain name while watching as the traffic dropped off to almost zero. Coming up on three years since the last post, I think it’s time to let it go. I’ve unchecked the Auto-Renew option in Hover for the domain and with that done, I now have a few months to figure out what, if anything, to do with the content.

All of the audio files are hosted on, so they will essentially live forever, minus the index associated with the small school big tech web site itself. I’ve been debating sucking all the episodes from Small School Big Tech over to this site. I know it will break all the external URL references like iTunes and Feedburner but at least the references to the links will exist somewhere in one place. What I’d really like to do is create one page with every episode title and link on it, old school web index style.

Or maybe I’m being nostalgic and should just let them go. Leave them to live on at forever, to be discovered, or not, in the ever expanding historical record of the Interwebs.
