Not only do I not hold that view, but only a misunderstanding of my post could ever infer such meaning.
Did I say that? I said blogs are by nature informal. Informal and "opinion" are very different.
Um, OK, what are we talking about now? Which statement?
So obviously Microsoft isn't a grown up company, and neither is Yahoo, both of whom employ/employed celeb bloggers "unofficially" (Scoble and Zawodny, respectively).
IMHO, and you are free to disagree, the world has changed. No longer are unneccesary bureaucracies, and corporate BS that takes weeks to craft, the norm. I got my passport renewed today. Know how long it takes to deliver? 10 working days! First time I got it it took 8 weeks! We no longer accept unneccesary waiting.
Your whole whole angle on this is one I find odd. I don't think it is an issue of big vs small, official vs unofficial, and I made no such comments nor did I use such words. Rather, it is an issue of over importance placed upon one person's blog, when there are, as I pointed out, some 80 odd Google blogs I know of (and I just realised forgot to add Vanessa Fox's), none of which receive half the attention. Google is trying to hype these bloggers, which you said was needed, and yet hasn't changed anything.
IMHO again, it is neither fair nor reasonable to tell anyone else how to run their site. So long as they abide by the law, a business/person is free to do whatever they please. If Google accpet that Matt's blog is informal, it is neither your's nor my place to say otherwise. You are welcome to be unhappy with how Matt runs his blog, but you can't expect him to change.
