Attorney Michael Fitzgibbon at Thoughts from a Management Lawyer, referring to Robert Scoble and my recent posts about a Technorati employee’s blog posting, says, “I think it’s important for those who do blog to understand that there can be employment consequences and fallout from what they say on their blog.
The lessons learned from this are easily transferable to the area of employment law. When you blog at, about or on behalf of your employer, there are consequences, irrespective of where you happen to fall on the org. chart.”

Equally important is that corporations develop policies relating to employees who blog, internally and externally. Any corporation not looking at this issue is looking for trouble.
