I prefer being behind the camera!

Meet Alan Levine

I love technology and helping people unlock their creativity. I like bicycling (cog), animals (dog) and online writing (blog).


Alan’s Information Site Blogging since 2003 at CogDogBlog Over 43,000 photos shared in flickr


Alan Levine feels weird writing about himself in the third person.

He is recognized for expertise in the application of new technologies to education. A pioneer on the web in the 1990s and an early proponent of blogs and RSS, he shares his ideas and discoveries at Among his active interests are new forms of web storytelling (including 50+ Web Ways To Tell a Story, pechaflickr, and the StoryBox), as well as leading and teaching the open digital storytelling class, ds106.

He has created open tools such as flickr creative commons attribution helper and Feed2JS plus has been an invited speaker at national and international conferences at

Most recently he was instructional technology specialist at the University of Mary Washington, following leadership positions at the New Media Consortium and the Maricopa Community Colleges. Currently he is exploring new options under the banner of his own creation CogDog.It.

When possible, he enjoys the peace of a little cabin in a place called Strawberry, Arizona. His interests include digital photography, bending WordPress to his whims, and randomly dipping into the infinite river of the internet.

Sadly, he chose to study French in high school (of which he remembers little beyond ordering soup) and is trying his best to hablo español and will sound like a three year old.

The planning trip for this project in April 2015 was his first visit to Guadalajara, and he fell in love with your city- these are photos from that visit:

He is done talking about himself.
