Murphy's Law

 Neville Hobson has a great post on blogging guidelines which includes Michael Hyatt‘s corporate guidelines for corporate blogging and Tom Reynolds‘ excellent How to Blog and Not Lose your Job – Version 1.0.

“Sometimes blogging is just an excuse to get you fired.  Sure, you might roll into work drunk, do very little work, backchat to your boss and fall asleep during the afternoon � but the reason they sacked you is because they found out you have a blog!  I�m no expert on how easy it is to sack people, but I suspect that �gross misconduct�, �failure to follow Internet policy�, �bringing the company into disrepute� and �Revealing company secrets� are fairly easy things to get past an industrial appeal board.  I would imagine that some of the people who have been fired or disciplined have comforted themselves with the thought that �it�s because I have a blog, that�s the only reason�.  So be a good worker, then they won�t be so quick to sack you.”


 Elizabeth Albrycht has some excellent ideas for corporate RSS feeds.


 Robin Stavinksy links to Cisco‘s High Tech Policy Blog: “Welcome to Cisco Worldwide Government Affairs’ (WWGA) High Tech Policy Web Log (“Blog”). WWGA started this blog in an effort to share the public policy expertise and opinions of our team members. We hope that you find it useful.”
