Mau, or Mauricio Büchler is an enigma for me. I mean what kind of name is that? And, he calls himself “Mau” like a friendly Hawaiian or Chinese gang member. I suppose it fits with his free-wheeling lifestyle that has yet to be pigeon-holed by me yet. But I like what I see. Even the A.D.D. style of his projects seem to be ready to go “whither the spirit leadeth”.
He has been trying a lot of things over the last couple of years and seems to be blazing some trails for the Millennial learner. I have only looked superficially at him. There is surprising little available, in spite of his degree in marketing he seems to be stretched very thin and not well presented for easy codifying.
I like him primarily because of his first impression of passion and as an entertainer. He knows how to connect with a crowd and edutainment is the second name for us at The Edupunk. We are also heavily committed to gaming applications (android app writing classes have started on our channel) for our long-term strategy. This guy is worth your evaluation and possibly financial support. I am trying to get in touch with him but until then I thought you would like the couple of things I have found about his activities.
I hope to get him connected with our diva interviewer Kirsten to really drill down to the essence of his paradigm. I hear him saying that his heart is that for both the learner and teacher, IT SHOULD BE FUN!!!! Amen, brother, you are preaching to the choir! You get an honorary pass to The Edupunk.
Oh, BTW he is cute, while not a requirement for your consideration, most of the Edu-geeks that Kirsten finds are rather old (like me).
First embed is his long and almost boring TEDx video:
