I'm now a member of the Club!

Unfortunately, not a very exclusive club....

My recent post at Techlearning.com, MySchool 2.0 drew the Ire of Tom, as well as apparent Hoffman-wannabe Peter Rock. Neither appreciated my description of School 2.o, with Hoffman commenting:
"I can't read this ed-tech crap any more. It is insipid."
Rock offers this piece of enlightenment
"Just read the last paragraph. That is, if you're a masocheducator who enjoys a good stomach churn."
Wow.

To be honest, I really didn't like the post that much either. But I like it now, as now it seems that it will have some lasting benefit.

You see, Hoffman has decided that's it. He says: "I can't do this any more. " Hoffman has now reduced his ed-tech reading to "principals, a couple graybeards, and people actively involved in open source. " So, if you've been the object of his caustic and sometimes malicious comments, worry no more.

Some will argue that when voices are silenced in the blogosphere, the conversation is weakened.

I'm not one of those people. Just call it addition by subtraction....
