It’s Been a Great Run . . .
For those who come looking for a short, thoughtful read, a blogging life discussion, or a way to gradually ease back into the week. I offer this bloggy life question. . . .
You’ve been hearing rumors.
This weekend’s financial programs and news reports have confirmed it. Your mid-sized company has just been sold to a major corporation. Who knows why they bought it?
You know plenty about the corporation and their policies. You’ve been following them on the blogs for 2 or 3 years. The biggest issues are their stance against net neutrality, their attempts to squash anything opensource, and their flat-out policy against ANY employee or vendor blogging.
You read the corporate policy documents — they were passed around the Internet as examples of Big Brother. Basically, this buyout will mean that you will be required to close down your blog. It doesn’t matter that you blog about unrelated subjects — your content could not be connected to the company where you work or the corporation that bought it. The No Blog Tolerance rule is unbendable according to ex-employees of the behemoth enterprise who now owns your company.
How will you respond to coming ultimatum?
