Novell recently updated its internal policy governing how employees use the internet.

One notable change in the policy:

Personal websites, weblogs and other forms of online discussion are encouraged, and Novell respects employeesÂ’ use of them as a medium of selfexpression.

Obviously as a public company Novell requires that no confidential or proprietry information is posted. Novell has an ethics code that all employees are required to agree to (and electronically sign).

I think this is a good thing. Communication is becoming more open – Cool Blogs, Jeff Jaffe’s CTO Blog and Novell Open PR are all great examples.

Your feedback to date has been incredible and much valued. Keep it coming.
