Don’t speak your mind

I’ve often written about the inappropriateness of blogging about work.  It is just is not wise for one’s long term career goals.  All that being said I still am want to say something.   Well today I did, sort of, say something.   I was in a meeting discussing social media and I was asked if a certain technology would be assumed.

I stated, “Well since I’m no longer part of a certain organization I can be more free in my statements as my opinion represent no one but my own.”   Before I could continue a voice from the analog ether reached out slapped me saying, “That would be innapropriate.”   Now the voice belonged to someone who could make life more interesting for me and thus I slightly altered what I was going to say and reverted back to a safe zone of speech that is so common place in corporate America.   Safe, boring and full of the same old nothing speak…

Oh well.   I should know better.
