eWeek Biz Bytes: The Absurd Crackdown on Free Internet Services

Dan Briody comments on an article in theWall Street Journal discussing companies which ban public communicationservices:I'm not going to argue that these technologiesare often used for personal reasons. They are. But so are phones, and e-mail,and water coolers, and bathrooms. And they do come in handy. Instant messagingis a far quicker way to communicate than e-mail. Personal Web e-mail accountsare great backups for corporate server outages. And any company that'snot looking hard at switching their entire telecommunications system overto the IP network is already behind the game. Bandwidth concerns? Please.Within 10 years every piece of business communication will be running throughthe IP network.Now what's the technology direction forbathrooms and water coolers? On the other hand, perhaps the reason some of the companies mentioned havelocked up public communication services is that they have business-qualityproducts deployed or in plan, and are going to use enterprise connectionslike those in the new Sametime 7.5 to manage the connectivity for theirenterprise. Still, I think open and available is the way to go.  I really appreciatethat IBM acknowledges that some personal use of corporate resources isbound to happen, and not to make us punch codes into the copier/FAX touse it, not to block eddiebauer.com, and not to turn off ports for AOL/Skypeetc. Link: eWeekBiz Bytes: The Absurd Crackdown on Free Internet Services> (Thanks, boss)
