Presidents Who Blog

Unattributed, CAUT University Affairs, Aug 07, 2008
Commentary by Stephen Downes

CAUT Universuity Affairs looks at the growing phenomenon of university presidents blogging and raises the question of whether they should. Well - of course they should - you exercise leadership by being audible and visible, not by hiding in an office. But of course, "Our legal counsel strongly advised me against doing it... The blog sometimes makes the folks here in central communications blanch a little, too." From my experience, it seems lawyers advise against everything. That makes them functionally useless. I would like to see lawyers more often advising how we can do things, not advising us that we shouldn't.
