  • Corporate Blogs, a new paradigm for product design

    Backbone Media, an internet marketing and web development firm based outside of Boston, has published a meaty survey of corporate bloggers to try and get a sense of the motivations and best practices behind corporate blogs. Their survey, Corporate Blogging: Is it Worth they Hype? is the best piece out there today. Along with the […]

  • Product Blogs, a new business model

    My colleague, Loic Le Meur, is interviewed by Shel Israel for their upcoming book on business blogging. Loic shares his story about a T-shirt fanatic who built a community of like-minded T-shirt fans via his blog. His site is now a business which turns the traditional “we-design, you-buy” commerce model inside out (sorry about the […]

  • Boeing’s Flight Test Blog

    Ever wonder what it’s like to beta-test a major airline? Boeing takes the wraps off of their latest blog which will give a rare, inside view of the their new 777-200LR Worldliner aircraft as it runs (flies?) through the paces towards certification. This blog, or journal, is going to change that. Now we have a […]

  • Bloggers & the Law

    Those looking for a little legal advice on corporate blogging would do well to read Ephraim Schwartz’s column in last week’s InfoWorld magazine.

  • Boeing Blog takes off with Movable Type

    After a false start with “another blogging software package,” we’re pleased to see that Boeing has come around and launched their blog on Movable Type. After criticisms for not having an RSS feed, permalinks, archives, nor search they’ve come around and included all of these features in Randy’s Journal 2.0. They were also hammered for […]

  • Bite PR on Doc’s “snowballs”

    Bite’s Trevor Jonas posts about the marketer’s perspective of Doc Searl’s snowball metaphor – "frightening." I think it’s all about giving into the loss of control. It’s no longer about having a message to control and more about participating in a conversation as a participant and not a leader. This gets to what is still […]

    General Motors created a lot of excitement and gained serious cred in the blogging world when they launched their Fast Lane blog several months ago. Neville Hobson and Shel Holtz hosted Michael Wiley, the sponsor of the the program in one of their podcasts.  Neville is a huge fan of Podcasts and I guess it […]

  • Corporate RSS Made Simple

    I share a lot of the burden of explaining what blogs & RSS feeds are all about with my brethren who develop RSS readers. Sandy Hamilton of NewsGator posts a nice run down on corporate RSS feeds, why they’re not as complicated as they sound, and points to examples of companies that use them. I […]
