I can add more sources if necessary. Will is certainly the preeminent advocate of blogging in education in the United States and has heavily influenced the edublog community over the last five years. I believe his contribution is enduring and he belongs in Wikipedia. I do not have any affiliation with him or his organization. Victoria A. Davis 18:23, 1 January 2007 (UTC)

Having read Mr Richardson's book and also read many of his contributions towards education online, I can also vouch that this article should stay up. His views on using Web 2.0 applications in the classroom have been read and adopted by many teachers across the US and abroad. --Renrenren 02:45, 2 January 2007 (UTC)

I have tried to expand this with some additional information. At what point does it qualify as a "real" article and no longer a stub? WeisheitSuchen 21:07, 11 January 2007 (UTC)

On September 1 2009 FTHS will host a group of nearly 200 educators who will listen to Will Richardson speak. They will then work in break-ous sessions to determine how best to implement his suggestions in their own classrooms. Check back for their postings here then.24.187.160.64 (talk) 16:20, 22 August 2009 (UTC)
