Employee Blogging Policy

Ray Ozzie has kindly shared Groove’s first draft of an employee policy on blogging.

If you choose to identify yourself as a company employee or to discuss matters related to the company?s technology or business on your website or weblog, please bear in mind that, although you and we view your website or weblog as a personal project and a medium of personal expression, some readers may nonetheless view you as a de facto spokesperson for the company.

They go on to outline several guidelines to help employees understand what lines the company needs to draw. The guidelines seem very reasonable to me and should help employees understand what their employer may or may not be comfortable with.
