The focus of this Inaugural Issue of MOOC Magazine is the creative output of Dr. Glyn Davis’ Warhol MOOC from the University of Edinburgh / Coursera.
As we were putting the final touches on the Warhol Issue of MOOC Magazine, we received the sad news that Factory Superstar Ultra Violet passed away on Saturday,June 14, at the age of 78. We’ve set up this page with a few small memories of her and invite you to leave a message.
Andy Warhol is an artist. Jack Bauer is a spy. Their job titles are different but each is on a quest for truth. The favored truth extracting technique for both Andy and Jack is torture.

Or at least that he didn’t “save me.” In every parallel universe I’ve been able to visit these 42 years since my death, I’m sorry to have to report that Edie always dies young. It’s only in the universes where Edie meets Andy, that Edie ever really matters. It’s only in the universes where I meet Andy that I ever really live.
