IBM issues Corproate Blogging Guidelines

I guess recent events have motivated companies to go beyond Microsoft's infamous guidelines for company employees who blog: "be smart."

IBM's policies are making their way around and they seem reasonable, and frankly obvious, but always good to detail the obvious for the common-sense-impaired.

Some items of interest:

A big emphasis on:It's public, and it's forever.

A nice hat tip to the hat tip: "Find out who else is blogging on the topic, and cite them."

And a rational approach to altering blog material: "Don't pick fights, be the first to correct your own mistakes, and don't alter previous posts without indicating that you have done so."

All in all not much to complain about, and as stated by Corporate Blogging Info, it's a good baseline for any company trying to construct their own guidelines
