Sun Policy on Public Discourse

Sun Policy on Public Discourse

This was just forwarded to me from John Kaster. It seems that Sun is picking up the blogging banner and has an official set of guidelines for bloggers. Eventually, we [Borland] will have a similar set of rules. After all the brouhaha about disclosing too much information, this set of guidelines seems reasonable, don't you. One thing to note about these guidelines is that they never say to err on the side of silence. They merely encourage the individual to seek approval for something that they are unsure of. Of course the one from whom approval is received may themselves be overly cautious, but at least there are checks and balances.

For now, these guidelines look very reasonable.
