Many companies have encouraged their employees to blog over the past several years. In general, Citrix employees have been fairly quiet, although this is slowly changing. Citrix executives have recently clarified their blogging policy for employees, and now more employees than ever are blogging.
Citrix employee Sam Johnston (an escalation engineer from Ireland) has created a website called citrite.org, a WordPress-powered multi-author blog site offered for host free blogs for current and former Citrix employees. The site currently hosts about a dozen blogs. Several of these are simple “Hello World”-type things, but there are a few early gems (Sam Johnston, Jamie B, and Dave Gallinson).
As I’ve written previously, I’m very excited about Citrix employees sharing their thoughts and perspectives on the industry. I really believe that Citrix can use blogging as a platform to help their customers understand their products, direction, and strategy.
