Forbes: Attack of the Blogs

Look, Mom, I'm in Forbes magazine!EdBrill, an IBMer who works on Notes marketing and publishes his own blog(edbrill.com), responded on July 23 last year to Radicati's bearish Notesreport. He questioned whether she had ties to Microsoft and referred readersto two other blogs with far blunter assertions.  ...Radicati fought back by responding on her own Web site, but the smear jobhovers online, appearing when you Google her name or start with Brill'smostly diplomatic site and then work your way through its links. One stepaway is IBM itself, which has a Notes site that once linked into Brill's.That link has since been taken down. Radicati says IBM ignored her pleasto stop Brill from linking to the hate sites. IBM says it has nothing todo with Brill's blog. One important point to re-emphasize,from Radicati'sresponse at the time:[W]ebelieve that the comments on Ed Brill's blog represent his own personalopinion and that of his friends, and do not reflect the opinion of IBMLotus' management. Well, either they do or they don't-- I'll take the published comments on their website as their formal positionon the discussion. There's not much point in otherwise commenting on the specifics of thatfifteen-month-old incident, or even many of the specifics of the article. Others have done that already this morning: DanGillmor, SteveRubel, NevilleHobson, ChrisPirillo, BoingBoing, AmericaBlog,BLOchman, JupiterResearch, many others.Instead, I want to talk about the value of blogging.  I had no ideawhat my blog would become three years ago when voweencouraged me to start one.  My early entries tended to be more randomand varied.  In the last eighteen months, though, this blog has becomea voice within the collaboration software marketplace.  I tend notto hold back -- one of the incredible values and core tenets of the blogosphere. My competitors dislike this.  My customers and partners mostlylike this.  I've been willing to admit mistakes, to make corrections,to change decisions.  I've shared wonderful news and events, and challengesand disappointments.  Is it "fair and balanced"?  Notalways, but I make no such representation.  I say things that soundlike a shill, but I also say things that have brought criticism from colleaguesand partners.  Such feedback has helped make me a better writer, tothe point where we're now at 15,000 hits a day and growing...with readershipfrom customers, partners, competitors, analysts, reporters, friends andfamily.  It's made me a better professional overall, too -- Blogginghas helped me do my job better, and while I emphatically do NOT claim solecredit for a product that hundreds of talented professionals work on everyday, Notes/Domino revenue has been growing double digits for a year+ now. Certainly, the voices in the blogosphere have helped me, and theentire Lotus team, improve our market position. I think the simple lesson that is completely missed in this article is,"the truth is out there".  Are there bloggers that writelibelous, slanderous, hate-filled vitriolic and useless sites?  Sure. But they can publish newsletters and buy radio time and stand inthe town center and give a speech with all the same content.  Bloggingis no different than any other media -- readers need to assess the credibilityof what they read, not just what they are reading.  I'll stand bymy credibility -- and yours as commenters on this site, or bloggersyourselves-- head and shoulders above anyone who writes one-sided stories,condones anonymous attacks, and tries to silence the truth.Link: Forbes:Attack of the Blogs >
