Blogging and the Law

Freshness Warning

EBIG’s December Blogging SIG will host a discussion on Dec 7 about the legal ramifications of corporate blogging, led by Charles Smith, COO and chief counsel of Pheedo. The meeting is at the Concord University of Phoenix campus.

If you’re in the Bay Area and have the slightest interest in the intersection of blogs and business, you should come to this event. I’ll be there along with he rest of the Pheedo management team, so stop by and say hello.

Yo, Adam! Long time no talk! While i had a blog up (I don't now because while I love Movable Type, I think its license is a bit draconian), I made a specific policy that I would never blog about work after I found out the hard way--albeit in a benign way--that your potential employers do read your blogs. Though more and more, in the absence of decent blogging software, I'm starting to think maybe it's not such a great idea to blog, but that's just me. Anyway, that's my short and sweet view on blogging and work. --Ian.
