Google reports success with internal blog

In an article in Network World, Jason Goldman, Blogger product manager at Google reports about the tremendous benefits from the first 18 months with an internal Weblog system. Google deployed an internal blog shortly after acquiring Blogger in early 2003. Says Goldman:

“Since then, we have seen a lot of different uses of blogs within the firewall: people keeping track of meeting notes, sharing diagnostics information, sharing snippets of code, as well as more personal uses, like letting co-workers know what they’re thinking about and what they’re up to. It really helps grow the intranet and the internal base of documents.”
