Sun requiring employees to sign guidelines on blogging

Steve Rubel talks on a Fortune article that states Sun employees will soon be required to agree to specific guidelines on blogging. Sounds like a good thing.

Maybe.

Does this mean soon Sun will require employees to sign a document allowing them to talk about work at a BBQ on Sunday afternoon, or at the Pub on Friday night? Or will the guidelines be sensible, I hope so.

Certainly blogs need to be cover by the general Internet Policy, and providing employees with a framework for what they can and cannot blog about would be good. Let’s hope that management at Sun is sensible about this.

I also wonder will the guidelines be global?

The full article from Fortune is an interesting read and can be found here and talks about some of the more well known “firings” over blogs.
