As reported today in the Guardian today, there are now guidelines as to how civil servants should make use of the web as a method of communication. The result, announced by the very web literate minister Tom Watson, is a very practical and simple set of guidelines.
I can speak from personal experience that such guidelines are vital, believe it or not I was once accused of breaking the civil service code, and breaching the Official Secrets Act based on the contents of this blog… Yes really !!
I would love to see someone else from the OS take up blogging under these new guidelines and provide a much needed “human” face to the organisation.

Sounds like a challenge to me! I recently blogged about the importance of putting some personality into PR so I’ll be watching out for any developments at OS with interest. Thanks for keeping me up to date with all the GI gossip.
