Here's a great question . . .
A note to execs: why do you think speaking is important but blogging isn't? This wonderful question was posed by Scoble and has only received 1 comment on his site in regards to this question.
What if the new "public speaking" is blogging? I saw another post by Scoble today that Sun had published it's blogging guidelines. Strange. No one seems to be publishing public speaking guidelines (although I'm sure that guidelines do exist at some companies). I have to say that it's very interesting to see some of the content that I have heard many executives give in public speeches not be "allowed" in corporate blogging policies (note to you executives giving those speeches: the text of your speeches can end up appearing online, but may not necessarily appear in a "blog").
