Corporate blogs, written well.
The Google Blog hasn't caught up yet. It's a surprising mis-representation - the culture we work in is fast, decisive, and colloquial but the blog voice is stiff. It's your not-so-cool uncle unbuttoning his shirt, listening to The Postal Service (but only the single of Such Great Heights) and proclaiming that Yeah, I totally dig your stuff you kids, this hip-hop speaks to me too. Um. Dogg. *flashes hang ten sign*.
He doesn't mention MSN's blog at all, and frankly, I don't blame him.
I'd have to agree that out of the four major SE blogs Yahoo! and Jeeves are the best, and also that Googles effort *is* stiff. MSN's effort is equally stuffy, and in my opinion, both of the larger companies need to loosen up a little. Having said that though, Yahoo's blog is really only good in comparison to the others, it too, is a little formal for my liking.
Maybe the Jeeves blog gets it due to Mark Fletcher of newly aquired Bloglines influence, and perhaps the other SE's should follow suit and lean on employee's that understand the medium to kick thier blogging efforts into something that would vaguely approximate interesting...
Yahoo could rely a little more on Jeremy Zawodny, Google could re-hire Mark Jen, he may have been a prize idiot but he's at least interesting... I've no idea what MSN could do to improve their blog. Give up would be favorite...
