This could be good — or not. Times Publisher David Hiller, who likes to explain at length his view of the emerging media world, has decided to blog it. But only inside the high walls of the Times — he hopes. Heh heh. His memo:
From: Hiller, David
Sent: Wed Oct 10 16:06 2007
Subject: Publisher's Blog
Taking up a suggestion a number of you have made, I have decided to do a blog about things going on at The Times and in our industry. It will be two-way, so you can post comments, give feedback and ask questions, and see what others are saying.
The Blog Homepage: http://blogger.latimes.com/
This is my first blog, so weíll be experimenting together a bit.
We thought it would be good to start with a few guidelines:
* This is internal, just for us, so please donít share the blog content outside the company
* Comments require the full name of the person posting Ė no anonymous posts
* The blogs are moderated and all posts will be reviewed for inappropriate language (e.g., libelous, obscene, invasion of privacy, etc.)
* The blogs will not get into specific employment matters (e.g., wages, hours, other terms and conditions of work)
* Be open and candid, and (as always) considerate of othersí ideas and viewpoints
* We may change our approach based on experience
So see you on the blog, and I look forward to our continuing conversation.
Also today: Mark Porubcansky was named deputy foreign editor. He had been an assistant.
