Thanks for the link David. Just top let you know, I have set up a page on 'content to be different' so there is a nice simple URL for anyone to link to:

www.theinternationale.org/back-the-bloggin-bosses/

I absoultely agree with the idea of getting bosses to blog- and moreover to get active citizens or higher profile members of a given community eg. head teachers to blog as a way of setting a precedent for the rest of us to join in.
The Lords blog: http://tinyurl.com/2rxjmp

and Permanent secretary blog: http://www.idealgovernment.com/index.php/blog/comments/1566/

are good examples from the public sector.

But its not just about these individuals as official leaders, its the informality of community leaders such as the rather fabulously active 80yr old Peter (aka geriatric1927) who has been doing great videoblogs on YouTube for quite a while now and encouraging other older folk to get involved in life online. http://tinyurl.com/2nrob8

Alice - I'm with you about many voices. And just because bosses start blogging, it doesn't mean they adopt a conversational tone. Stephen Bubb now has a further post up with some sideswipes at others in the sector ... but no acknowledgement for we minor beings who wished him well in comments. Just another platform?
