Davos bloggers warned

If you are not going to the World Economic Forum in Davos which starts on 25 January (and that means most of us) then we will have the chance to get delegates’ feedback on the official blogging site

Whether we will get the full story is questionable because there are fairly tough guidelines for the bloggers. For example:

  • Bloggers’ posts will  be manually published by one of the Forum  editors. Opinions will not be censored, however posts that do not abide by the guidelines will not be published, particularly those that do not conform to the on/off the record policy
  • Bloggers’ name will appear under everything thet write and they will be responsible for your own words.  Vulgarity, profanity and discriminatory remarks will not allowed and offending posts will be deleted.  Self-promotion is discouraged.
  • If a session is off the record, bloggers are warned not to quote people people   without their permission – particularly if they are under the impression that their remarks are private or off the record.

I will be interested to see how the blogs compare with the newspaper reports of the Davos meetings.
