Blogging behind the firewall

Chad Dickerson discusses InfoWorld's use of blogs internally. Good stuff.

But, I have to ask, what really is internal or external? How do off-site contractors, for instance, access the internal blog? What about employees working from home? Probably via a VPN. Which makes them internal, and makes their machines internal too. And once they are "inside," do they just have access to what they need, or do they have access to all kinds of things because they are an insider?

There is no perimeter. There's only varying degrees of trust, which are constantly being renegotiated. And since Guy confesses to being an idea vampire, I'm freely riffing on his theme.
