Blog Content: Not just for blogs anymore

A new release of the Sun.com portal was deployed late yesterday. In addition to a new tab for developers, a lot of additional Sun products were added for the "My Products" tab. My view only shows Solaris and a couple Sunfire products, but there are ~30 products that a user can add to their view.

Notice the blending of community content (blogs and forums in this case) with traditional corporate website content?

You may have also noticed syndication of Sun blog content on some of our product pages. Recently, the addition of Technorati blog feeds based on a given product topic are piped into these product pages. Check out the Sun Fire T1000 page for example.

So, you never know how far your blog and forums thoughts will travel. :-D

QUICK UPDATE: If you want to read the blog entry at the top of the Technorati list of blogs shown in the above image, here's the link. It's an interesting perspective from a now Sun customer as he made his way through the selection process in a race between Sun, HP, Dell, IBM, and Rackable.

And one of his reasons for choosing Sun is "Their CEO blogs, and he blogs in an open and honest way. Yes, this was a key selling point for me."

UPDATE TO THE QUICK UPDATE: This is too exciting to not mention. Rama blogged about the two Sun issues that the SmugMug CEO blogged about in the link noted above. Then, 12 minutes later he replied to Rama's post in the comments. I seriously LOVE that organic conversations like this can happen so effectively via the blogosphere.
