Sun's top lawyer starts blogging

Any Sun Microsystems legal staff who might want to raise a stink about new Chief Executive Jonathan Schwartz's unfettered blogging style now will have a harder time making their case: Sun's top attorney, Mike Dillon, launched a blog of his own on Thursday.

In his first entry, Dillon admits one recent blogging choice gave him the legal shivers. Sun decided to let ex-employees who had just lost jobs in Sun's layoff of 4,000 to 5,000 workers keep on posting at a Sun alumni blogging site.

"I have to admit that I held my breath when the site went live. But, far from being a magnet for angry ex-employees or litigation, the site has developed into a wonderful and supportive community," Dillon said in the blog.
