Hello again.

I spent a couple of years developing Wandering Academic into a sprawling website that housed international school data, scores of uneven posts about education and technology, some random bits and pieces. It never had any focus so I scrapped it.

The new incarnation of Wandering Academic is an academic blog to test out ideas on materials that I plan to use for research or materials that I include in courses and syllabuses. This site will end up representing my academic life, from 2013 onward. If you find an idea on this blog particularly useful or inspiring – however unlikely that case may be – please link back to or cite Wandering Academic where appropriate. I welcome comments or suggestions. I welcome personal emails too. Get in touch.

All the ideas and opinions herein are my own, as far as owning an idea is at all possible. Let’s say: they emanate from me and I take responsibility for them.

  1. HI Greg.

    Nice to hear that you are continuing to think and write about your research interests.

    I read an earlier post on how to use Evernote for academic writing and expanded on your ideas a bit. I linked to your original page, which is now not working. My “writing with evernote” tutorial is here:


    Is there another link to your original post that I could substitute? If not, would you mind if I updated the link to my clipped copy of your page? My suggestions are heavily inspired by your original post.

    Are you still thinking about how you use Evernote academically? I look forward to reading your future posts.


    1. Hello Jay,
      Nice to hear from you. I’ve recreated the original page (it’s filed under the “Academic Tools” tab). The link is:

      I’ll check out your wiki in more detail when I get a chance. I am still thinking about Evernote, and I’m trying to figure out how it fits in with other tools like Zotero. It seems to me like the personal database for academics problem has not yet been solved.
      Take care,

  2. It’s nice to see you back in the blogging saddle again, Greg. I look forward to reading some stimulating pieces and knowing that I’ll agree with some, but not all.
