They're dead. They'rethriving. Dead. Thriving.

Beth Kanter offers a nice round up of the conversation to date: Beth's Blog: The trail of discoverability ... take 2.

Lots of food for thought. The whole discussion -- and the way in which it has been conducted -- provides, to my mind, a good evidence that blogs are in fact different than websites. Could anyone imagine this happening on a bunch of organizational sites? Would they even recommend that it should?

Blogging is about personal voice. Beth's post (linked above) points to examples of the way that organizations do this. Microsoft and Sun provide two other examples. In neither case are their blogs on their main corporate site -- but clearly both are letting employees talk about their work on company time.
