The creation of the Blog Council is fascinating. A group of very large corporates collaborating to evolve their policy towards using/managing the blogosphere.
“Every major corporation is struggling with the question of how to use blogs and engage the blogosphere the right way,” said Sean O’Driscoll, General Manager, Community Support Services for Microsoft. “The Blog Council brings together precisely the people who need to explore these issues together, in a productive and private networking environment. We can work together to develop model policies that set the standard for corporate blogging excellence.”
I’m not sure of the relevance of the title other than I thought Blog Council – then Style Council then hummed the song then thought there’s something about freedom and control here. Lets hope the corporates keep on the track of openness as an innovation driver (whilst quietly patenting every burp and fart from their staff) Some of their work is in private – some will be in public – so some walls still there.
