I think, as a community, we’re missing a trick here. Most of us have, in one form or another a disclaimer on our blogs. If we could agree to a common disclaimer for civil servants/gov consultants (or better yet public-sector staff world-wide) wouldn’t that put us in a situation where, as practitioners, we agree to hold our selves by a common set of standards and principles that reflect a commitment to being open, professional and part of a wider government community? Wouldn’t a common disclaimer lend itself to use across a wide range of social media tools? Couldn’t this be integrated into overarching guidance when it is released?
Or am I just being naive? What do others think?
