Nicholas Carr has a great blog entry about conflicts of interest in blogging. It got me thinking about a silent policy I’ve always had for myself when blogging here. I don’t blog about the many vendors in the MSI creation space except the ones that I am affiliated with. Namely I write about the WiX toolset (because I lead that effort) and sometimes VisualStudio’s Setup Projects (because I work for Microsoft and I’m often asked to relate it to WiX ). I don’t write about InstallShield or Wise or the many, many others.
My question to those of you who read my blog regularly is, “Do you think this policy is a good one and should I keep following it?” Please, leave a comment below or send me a comment through the contact link.
