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.
