What Not To Blog

Yes, all the talk today about Google and blogs is about the launch of Blog Search, but equally newsworthy to me is the recent post about Dr. Lee on Google's official blog.

Straight from the handbook of "what not to blog about" on a company site comes a single post that discusses (1) a currently-pending lawsuit, (2) a judge's decision in a case that hasn't yet gone to trial, (3) a personnel issue regarding a current employee, and (4) their relationship with Microsoft, their biggest competitor. I guess the moral of the story is that it's good to be a lawyer, but don't try this one at home, kids. Congrats to Google for being way more open with their personal business than they are about their products.

I wonder if their intranet has a page that says "Google HR (Beta)".
