Just a heads up that two more vendors have officially launched multi-employee-written blogs for their customers, fans, followers, and partners.   Adobe is funnelling all new blog entries from eight of its staffers to the top level URL blogs.adobe.com.  Authors of the blogs include several Adobe technology evangelists as well as Bill McCoy whose About Me page says he's in charge of platform product management at Adobe, including its desktop and mobile Reader software and associated PDF technologies.  McCoy even published his e-mail address -- a rare but welcome gesture from a vendor executive.  

Also launched this week is a series of blogs from app dev solution provider Compuware.  Compuware has enlisted seventeen of its internal folks that specialize in a variety of application development disciplines (disciplines like J2EE and model-driven development that are of course covered by Compuware's products) that target the information needs of the company's customers and partners.  Like Adobe, Compuware's blogs are just getting started --- some of the bloggers haven't even written their first entry yet.
