Nick Carr, Robert Scoble & Blogging Etiquette

Nicholas Carr finds Scobeleizer as the bully of the blogosphere. In some parts I agree with him and in some parts, disagree with Nick. Nick is right in pointing out that it is very important for someone to keep cool and project a dignified image about the company and keep corporate language in the blogs – normally associated with corporate. I disagree with him in trying to sanitize the blogs with a framework for bloggers from the corporate world – I think the blogosphere movement has its own trajectory and focus – after all scobeleizer is not running something like the Mini-Microsoft blog ( which manages to get international attention anyway in large numbers) .

I fully endorse Nick’s view(made in response to Scoble’s claim that the blog is his own and not that of Microsoft) that if one’s intent is on indulging oneself with an own blog, it is better to refrain from blogging about one’s own company. Being an employee always requires curbing one's self-indulgent instincts. Scobeleizer is also an important member of the blogging movement. In my view his contribution far exceeds the blips that I might notice in his recent writings. So net effect – easily excused but Nick’s point is noted and deserves definite consideration. After all this is a fast evolving media and perhaps less than five years old – viewpoints and perspectives like these would always help in the growth of the blogosphere.
