(HBS Bulletin | Keith Larson | Mar 04, 2008) Blogs have long since come into their own. After all, they’ve been around since 1994, and just recently a blogger received the George Polk Award for excellence in journalism. So it seems a good time to recognize blogs by HBS alums and faculty by compiling a list of them and presenting it on the Bulletin blog. I have included only ongoing blogs that have had entries in 2008. Though the number of blogs listed is small, the range of their topics is broad, including kite-surfing, food and wine, technology, politics, and investing. Several of these blogs are very well known (those by Andy Tobias MBA ’72J and Thomas Lifson MBA ’76H, for example); others recording only the details of one family’s life are comparatively unknown. But these blogs all share the virtue of allowing easy exposure to personal views about new swaths of the world.
At the end of each blog listed below is a summary, if necessary, of the blog’s subjects and a note about how long it has been going. This list probably represents only a very small fraction of the alumni blogs that are out there, so please send us Web addresses of HBS blogs you know of that are missing here.
You may contact the Bulletin with Alumni blog addresses by calling 617.495.6554 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
