This coming Tuesday, KMPro Chicago will be hosting a panel on Blogs in Business.
The practice and value of weblogs ("blogs") and blogging has been getting more and more press of late, including much analysis by the mainstream press about what blogging means for traditional media. What hasn't been quite as widely discussed is the movement of blogs into the corporate environment as means of communication within the enterprise and as a tool for external communication. We will discuss a variety of aspects of how this medium is being used now in businesses, and we will look at some aspects of where blogs may or may not work in the enterprise. Our current panel is Robert Scoble of Microsoft, Jon Powell of Hewitt Associates, Ian Kennedy of Six Apart, and Jim McGee of Huron Consulting.
