I'm reserving my final opinion on the Dell blogging experiment. I'll give them a few months to see if the net effect of publishing their blog is positive or not. I don't expect anything great from Dell. Their culture is simply too focused on numbers over people, too inward looking and creatively constipated. However, this experiment may open them up a bit and they need every little bit they can get. Craig Danuloff came closest to expressing my views in his post: "Blogging Into A Buzz-Saw : The New Dell Blog"
Nevertheless, the entire discussion has kept me amused. Don't miss out on the fun. Read Jeff Jarvis's blog post along with the comments; I had a good laugh.
