Despite initial scepticism I’m finding Twitter a very useful way of keeping up with professional issues and trends – as long as you’re selective about who you follow! (If you want to follow LISC on Twitter the user name is LISC_NI https://twitter.com/#!/LISC_NI)
It was via Twitter that I came across an interesting blog post by Brian Kelly of UK Web Focus at UKOLN on Guidelines for Professional Blogs hosted in the Cloud. It explores the policy issues and the relationship between independent blogs and the institution with which the blogger is connected, as an employee, associate or whatever.
Employers might find Brian’s observations and suggestions useful. See the UK Web Focus Blog.
