Schools Can Also Benefit

I'm sure I posted James Snell's IBM's Blogging policies and guidelines in the past.
But it's probably worth another mention since it includes some great points for not just the "suits". Some good stuff is there (via Bill Ives Portals and KM)

Here's a brief piece from Snell's post:
-Respect your audience and your coworkers. Remember that IBM is a global organization whose employees and clients reflect a diverse set of customs, values and points of view. Don't be afraid to be yourself, but do so respectfully. This includes not only the obvious (no ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, etc.) but also proper consideration of privacy and of topics that may be considered objectionable or inflammatory -- such as politics and religion.
-Add value. Blogs that are hosted on IBM-owned domains should be used in a way that adds value to IBM's business.
-Apply the skills and values learned from participation in IBM jams, IBM forums and other kinds of online collaboration.
-Know your fellow bloggers.
-Don’t pick fights.

My strong belief is that SOME THINGS that work for big business, could also work for educational outfits. For example, teaching students about money, finance, and strategic planning isn't something we implore our students to undertake. However, if we did, we'd probably have more jobs staying in the states.
