(Feeling the whole Livingstone vibe as I use those years of earning a PhD to help with the branding… 🙂
Howdy, fellow adventurers!
I’m Wayne Buckhanan and I’m a geek who love people and teaching.
During the day, I teach Computer Science, Math, and Physics at a 4-year college in Napa Valley, CA.
By night, I fight crime…er, try and take over the world?…play on the Internet!
I’m a perpetual learner, so I’m certified/licensed to train Neuro-Semantics, Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP), 4MAT instructional design methodologies, the ChangeWorks coaching tools and Productive Tension Management. I’m a big fan of geeking out with people on the topics that excite them, whether the deeply technical computer or neurosciencey stuff to the mysteries of how we do what we do inside our heads, or whatever it is that you’re passionate about.
I signed up for TGeA mostly on a whim. I know my own sales buttons and getting in on the super special early offer definitely hit one (or more) of those buttons. I also loved the vibe of the adventure map and thought I’d join the crazy guys to play and have fun with it all.
After I signed up, I actually watched the 30min+ intro video and laughed at the “been working on an eCourse for 5 years” line because I’ve already got a decade of not releasing products under my belt! (Ugh. Lots of valid excuses — that I’m ready to blow out with a little accountability and a lot of actually following directions rather than making stuff up and then stalling before “launching”!)
I’ve got so much content in my head, so much experience in the teaching side, and so much tinkering and perfectionisting to get over that I’ll be releasing a ton of courses on various and sundry topics. NS-NLP, teaching/instructional design, TRIZ and creativity, maybe some programming, probably a bit of project management lean/agile style, and whatever other topics catch my attention long enough to learn and teach!
And, just in case you missed it, what makes me come alive is learning, teaching, and solving “impossible” problems — whether digital tech or people tech related.
Looking forward to the rest of the crew finding their way into the light of the campfires.
(Impatience is one of the programmer’s virtues — along with Laziness and Hubris. Let me know how I can help shake the bugs out of the system, gents!)

Thanks for holding down the fort at Basecamp while we got everything set up for all the other adventurers!! You’ve been here a while. We appreciate you keeping the campfire going.
Based on the emails we’ve sent back and forth and your description, you’re definitely on the right mountain.
We’re really excited to support your creative process and to make some eCourse magic.
Thanks for being here and for your patience as we prepared the trail 🙂December 8, 2015 at 2:16 pm #3663
hi Wayne…. just sending a hello… you live in Napa Valley? I spend a year abroad at Sonoma State back in the 90s … just love that area and Napa!!! Great vibes! Cherio, AwiDecember 8, 2015 at 2:45 pm #3683

Greetings Dr. Wayne,
So glad you found us 🙂 I can totally relate with you on many levels, and I have a sneaking suspicion we are going to have a blast together..
Oh and thanks for helping us squash some of those early bugs 😉

Oh, and gents, I found y’all by way of Ash Ambirge at The Middle Finger Project when she pointed at GEA with this:
I always say that the experience IS the product, and these guys have created a course that proves it. They’ve found a way to differentiate themselves by providing a unique learning experience that takes you on a learning adventure…literally. So many business owners are worried that their expertise is nothing new or revolutionary, and therefore they don’t know how to stand out from the sea of sameness, but remember: You don’t have to invent the lightbulb. You just have to show people how to use the lightbulb in a new way.December 9, 2015 at 2:06 am #3821
I love Islands!!! Something about cozy and close-knit kinship! St. Helena is beautiful!!!!December 9, 2015 at 12:35 pm #3860

Awesome Dr W! We are huge Ash Ambride fans. She’s one of the only newsletters I get in my inbox that i open and read almost every time. She cracks me up. Super grateful for her shout out. I’m sure we’ll find others on the mountain who were referred through her.
PS – the pleasure is all ours. Creating this course has been a glorious creative crazy outlet for us 😉January 4, 2016 at 5:36 pm #7071
Hey there Dr. W,
So nice to meet you! I am fascinated by what you have described as your work (during working hours and otherwise) All the best for you in this program 🙂

Hey, Dr. Wayne. I love your description of your day and night work! What an interesting and smart person you are! I too have years of information and ideas bumping around in my head and mountains of 1/2 completed projects. This course caught my imagination, so here’s hoping that something rather remarkable and excitingly complete happens for both of us. Warm regards.January 9, 2016 at 5:05 pm #8050
Neuroscience! Yay! Genetics! Yay!
I missed out on all the biology classes throughout my schooling, so I’m having fun discovering all this stuff they didn’t know about when I would have taken those classes anyway. Plus computers. I’m not a programmer, but I’m someone who’s willing to say “hey, that’s broken” so the folks who are programmers can fix it, instead of just complaining (or staying quiet and leaving).May 22, 2016 at 5:48 pm #23062May 25, 2016 at 1:17 pm #23421
That is an impressive collection of books there.May 25, 2016 at 1:25 pm #23423
My favorite story around that wall of books was when asked by a student: “are those all your books?”
Me: “All these books are mine and I also have other books besides these. Which question were you asking?”
