Dell Weblog: Lots has been written about Dell’s foray into the blogosphere. I am not privy to the insider information that many of the above authors are, but it seems as though this is an attempt by Dell to make things more personal. I see shades of Channel 9 with the various vlog entries promoting new items and flashes of GM’s blog. Even the “About” page link location and theme (content) looks similar to GMs. Maybe they used the same company?
This smells more of cheap advertising than anything else. Maybe this is a start, but Dell could have done much better with the resources they must have at their disposal. Maybe Scoble is a rarity but I find it hard to believe that they could not find a CBO worth their salt to provide the sushi rice to hold it all together.
