The personal website of Kendra D. Bird, educator and professional nerd.
I teach computing, programming, and archiving courses at the University of Maine and Eastern Maine Community College, including courses in New Media, Computer Technology, and Digital Curation programs. I enjoy taking on new teaching challenges and helping students succeed.
I am highly interested in both modern and “retro” technologies and am an active collector of interesting devices and platforms that have met the fate of obsolescence. Particular areas of interest are 8- and 16-bit computing and videogaming, as well as 3D printing, and electronic toys.
I am a lifelong music fanatic and have been actively collecting physical media for twenty-five years. I have a very large music collection and enjoy sharing my musical interests with listeners worldwide on my weekly show on Deep Nuggets Radio. Check the Radio link above for more info.
