I just had a great IM chat with Mark Baartse who is the Online Platform Manager at Microsoft Australia. He's apparently a man with a vision - to have our local CEO, Steve Vamos, as a blogger. I think it's a great idea to have Microsoft execs blogging. Personally I agree with this article in The Economist that greater transparency is a good thing for corporations. "Rather than engage in futile resistance to it, firms should actively embrace transparency, and rethink their values and generally get in better shape."

What do you think? Do you want more blogging? From non-technical folks? What would you want a Microsoft exec to blog about?
