  No wonder IT doesn't want to support blogging...
In general (not related to MPOW!). I get alerts for new books added to Books 24x7 and this one came up this week:
Blog Rules: A Business Guide to Managing Policy, Public Relations, and Legal Issues
by Nancy Flynn
AMACOM © 2006 (240 pages)
ISBN:0814473555

Hm. Sounds interesting. Look at some selections from the table of contents:

Part 1 - The Case For Strategic Blog Management
Chapter 2 - Blogs Pose Unprecedented Risks To Business
Part 2 - Legal Risks and Regulatory Rules in the Blogosphere—Why Every Employer Must Establish Blog Policies and Procedures
Chapter 5 - Treat Blog Posts as Business Records
Chapter 6 - Blogs Create Million-Dollar (Sometimes Billion-Dollar) Legal Headaches for Employers
Chapter 7 - Shhh! Blogs Put Trade Secrets and Confidential Information at Risk
Part 5 - Blog Backlash—Employers Fight Back With Lawsuits and Pink Slips
Chapter 15 - Employee-Bloggers Beware 1—Blogging Can Get You Fired!
Chapter 16 - Employee-Bloggers Beware 2— Blogging Can Get You Sued!
Part 7 - Managing Your Reputation In The Blogosphere
Chapter 21 - You’ve Been Blogged—How to Prepare for—and Respond to— An Attack in the Blogosphere
Chapter 22 - Best Practices Help Keep Blogstorms at Bay

Am I overly sensitive (yes) or do these look like the author is trying to whip up a frenzy with her choice of chapter titles? I'm not sure I disagree with the content, but the way these chapters are titled will surely cause immediate fear and loathing in the corporate governance folks.

Funny thing, my alert from Academic Search Premier on the magazine Information Week brought me this article:

A Culture Of 'No'. By: Claburn, Thomas; Whiting, Rick; Malykhina, Elena; Chabrow, Eric. InformationWeek, 6/26/2006 Issue 1095, p23-28, 4p, 3c;
Abstract: The article reports that free consumer-oriented Web tools have increased the security and management problems of information technology (IT) professionals in the U.S. The widespread use of these tools in offices confused IT professionals on how to balance permissiveness and paternalism. Web tools such as instant messaging, e-mail or information sharing sites are often better than the tools prescribed by companies.; (AN 21383493)
