ToI on Work related blogging

Slimes of India has an article on work related blogging. Most of ToI’s articles do not present bloggers in good light.

A search of some Indian blogs threw up not only unsavoury references to a ‘kanjoos, khadoos boss of an IT multinational’, they also threw up information about ‘the sweatshop-like atmosphere where lowerrung employees are treated worse than slaves’ at another IT multinational. Employee blogs were not related to IT alone. Another blog spoke of a ‘boss of a leading hotel chain, and his not-so-nice activities.’ Says techie Nithin Jaidev, “Most Indian bloggers choose to remain anonymous, despite mentioning the companies they work for.”

  • mmmm! remaining anonymous helps a lot....at the same time, decorum should be maintained when blogging from office!

  • I too think that blogging about work is not good ! For that matter, I advocate that ppl dont reveal their sensitive personal information.

  • Kaps,

    Even though there is a thought we can take away for discussion, i guess we should all agree to not talk about TOI anymore :-(
