Blogability

I was listening to the GilmoreGilmor Gang Disclosure gang podcast I believe John Jon Udell brought up (52:53 minutes in) the overwhelming amount of punditry in the blogisphere. He thought initially that people would be using their blogs to maintain a “Narration of their work”. He was unable to find many examples of people narrating their work. The gang also talked about the constraints that exist for the average person when blogging. Well I can confirm that the restrictions and conflicts listed both real and perceived are accurate. The acceptance of blogging has yet to penetrate many large corporations. It is sad at times because I would love to share in more detail the things that I am passionate about. The dilemma is that which I am passionate about makes up a good part of my work hours. So I can feed my blog only bits and sanitized pieces of my passion.

  1. Ok, thats weird. I listened to the exact same podcast last night and was also taken with what Udell was talking about and thinking about the same thing.

    The sad thing is that about 60% of ones time is spent at work, which is essentially the bulk of your life. Most of your experiences happen during this time. The inability for some companies to distinguish between intellectual property and common concepts and even personal opinion that are “not the opinion of ones employer” is a real problem when it comes to allowing people to share real, meaningful experience.

    I share Udells concerns as well. As a matter of fact, I think its pretty damn sad.

  2. “The inability for some companies to distinguish between intellectual property and common concepts and even personal opinion that are “not the opinion of ones employer” is a real problem when it comes to allowing people to share real, meaningful experience.”

    That’s the exact reason why I don’t work as an employee anymore and hopefully, will never do so again.
