Couldn’t agree more…

…with Shel Holtz when he says that large companies have every right to participate in the blogosphere discussion going on about them.  Anyone who feels they shouldn’t be there is, in my opinion, trying to squash that voice for a reason of their own.  Participation by companies, PR agencies and other share holders in the topics being talked about online should be valued and welcomed with open arms.  That of course assumes that, using Shel’s driving analogy, they abide by the rules of the road and aren’t doing anything that violates the openness and honesty that have made blogs so successful.  No matter what particular tactic the company employs, whether it’s a product-specific blog, one by a PR guy or any other form it might take, as long as the purpose is clear then it deserves a spot on the road.
