Billy G’s Blog

The Seattle Times has an article saying Bill Gates may become a blogger (via Anil).

“Yes, the world’s richest man may start his own blog, one of those online diaries that have been the rage among techies for the past three or four years.”

As funny as it is to think of a secret Bill Gates Blog, I think it also sends a clear message to corporations at large that there’s viability in utilizing blogging to connect with customers, partners and employees.

Indeed, there’s nothing new here and MSFT is well known for coming late to the party, but when they do arrive, they make a strong showing. Even without the latest Billy Blog rumor, the visibility of a MSFT Blogging initiative is evident in the ever-growing list of Microsoft Bloggers.
