Blogging for Marketing Rising

I think we all knew this and really don’t need a post to explain it, but what the hell! We’ve just started blogs@si — for a different reason, but in the end its all about putting the power of publishing in the hands of the community. A while back I was talking to some friends at Apple, actually egging them on to start some sort of coorporate blogging program … didn’t get too far, but they have started doing it for a few things.

This little read popped into my bloglines this morning and thought I’d shre the link … Micro Persuasion: Corporate Blogging Rising … sort of reminds me of hte research proposal we are organizing around community blogging and shared community ownership. See Higher Education isn’t that far behind!

  1. interesting….and, what are our apple friends doing with blogs? being a corporate denizen, i would love to know the Apple vision on blogs.

    i would even be willing to share what i know can be accomplished with blogs in a corporate setting. lots of cool things to do with blogs in a corp setting…would love to chat with them.

    let me know….

  2. Here’s one example, although its not exactly a big deal (and who knows if it is really an Apple blog) … The Apple Student Blog … looks like mostly marketing. What I’d really like to see are more sites by Apple people, like Surfin Safari … somepleace where insight can be taken from the space. I will keep pushing and add you to the list of people willing to help. Thanks!
