Last night at the Blog Business Summit reception I met Laurie Mayers of Hass MS&L, the PR company who worked with Bob Lutz, Vice Chairman of General Motors, to create the GM FastLane Blog. I learned a little bit from Laura about how the blog works and thought you might be interesed, too.
The blog was result of an ongoing conversation between Hass and GM about blogs. It is run on Movable Type, and Bob Lutz sometimes moblogs using his Blackberry. The company has been pretty happy with all the attention the launch has gotten so far. I love that on the About page GM has indicated their adaption of the Blogger Code of Ethics. I mean, how cool is that?
The blog was a follow to the GM Smallblock Blog, which Hass and GM created as a kind of trial foray into the blogosphere. (more...)
