Robert, Joshua, and others have been discussing guidelines for employee weblogging.  Much of this discussion was sparked (or rekindled) by a recent entry by Tim Bray.  When I jumped into the discussion, my main question was this- “Should we treat weblogs differently from any other type of communication?”  I do see some uniqueness to the weblog medium when compared with other types of communication, but I'd be interested in seeing guidelines or best practices with more universal application that build on our experiences.  Many of us have communicated on behalf of our companies prior to having weblogs.  This is an issue of prior art, and there is also an opportunity to document some best practices for communication that will apply as weblogs continue to evolve and new media comes into play.
