Hat tip to Kevin O'Keefe, owner of LexBlog ("Real Lawyers have Blogs"). Kevin's one of the few lawyers who I actually like to read what he writes. Tonight Kevin's got a post about the SEC Chairman, Christopher Cox commenting on Sun Microsystems CEO Jonathan Schwartz's blog. The original tip to this was from the law blog on the Wall Street Journal by Pete Lattman.
The interesting take away from all of it, is quite timely for me (as I'm involved with the Fortune 500 Corporate Blog Review Project), the chairman applauds the use of corporations uses blogs. In a letter that followed Cox's comment on Schwartz's blog Lattman reports: "Cox applauds the use of corporate websites as ‘as a source of information to the market and investors.’ "
I wonder if that's going to make some of these corporations finally take notice of utilizing the Internet as a communication tool, and not just a slick, glossy and cheap way to distribute their brochures and annual reports?
