Blogging in the Business World

More and more businesses use blogs. Some use them for marketing purposes, some use them as research platforms, or places to share corporate knowledge. Others use them as platforms for collaboration.

Dave Pollard has done a lot of writing on Web 2.0 applications like Blogs. Here's one of his better articles on the subject: http://blogs.salon.com/0002007/2005/12/15.html#a1374

My student blogs are starting up: Aimee is blogging about the best family oriented companies at http://familyorientedcompanies.blogspot.com/. Its a good beginning. I ask my students to make their blogs more interesting by linking to other web pages of interest, and to use visuals, where applicable (be sure not to violate copyright when you post a visual.)

I'm lamenting the fact that I've become too busy to go to the Computers and Writing Conference this year. It's even close--at Wayne State, in Detroit. My colleague, Dr. Suzanne Rumsey will be presenting there. http://englishweb.clas.wayne.edu/~cw07/cw07/
