There was a song in my head ever since I heard the news that the overzealous Proctorio was SLAPPing Ian Linkletter for his revealing their company IP by tweeting their unlisted YouTube links.

Surely I’m not the only one.

It was time for a long overdue (as if anyone is really waiting, I mean to me) EdTech Cover song! Here it is, from about 20 minutes of lyric rewrites, and done in one take.

I probably did more care with PhotoShopping a version of the album cover:

A re-rendering from scratch of a concert poster, using the Appendix font and a photo of Ian found on a UBC site labeled “Testing”.

Here is my song sheet:

If you want to support Ian, and you should, consider contributing to his GoFundMe and show that you too “Stand Against Proctorio.”

And for maybe a rare time I will recommend a twitter thread from no less author Cory Doctorow:

Even more important, sign up for the Teach-In Event scheduled for Tuesday, December 1

Just say No to surveillance and a stronger “NO” to Proctorio and their wretched tactics of pushing around critics.
