Tom Hoffman writes that "expecting bloggers to change things quickly is a little unrealistic" and Christian Long observes, "I'm not sure when the rule was laid down that any blogging -- whether it be about education or technology or some wonderful hybrid or about collectors of guinea pigs or whatever your bag of raisins -- that it had to change the world on any level." In this article, Chris Lehmann takes the view that Hoffman and Long are right to recommend patience. "We are changing things. Slowly... incrementally... one school... one classroom... one district at a time. And we are doing it at a time when the overarching edu-political landscape isn't exactly welcoming the kinds of reforms many of us are writing about and working to implement. And yet, we're doing it anyway."
