The author makes some very very interesting points here. Especially this: "The current and future benefits of blogging are literally too numerous to list here, (maybe Stephen Waddington will write an eBook about this) but suffice it to say, in all my years as a marketing and PR professional, business blogging is by far the highest yield investment I’ve ever made for: marketing, public relations, and recruiting." 

Who blogs at/about the company, and what, is another question, though. Also, how harmful some stuff can be.
