George Soros, the billionaire investor and philanthopist, started a blog on 30 September.
In his introductory post, he says: “I have started this website and this blog to hear from you. I am eager to engage in a critical discussion about this [US presidential] election because the stakes are so high, and I welcome your opinions here and on your own blogs. I am looking forward to responding to the many comments that I have already received in the days ahead. Thank you, and I look forward to hearing from you.”
His blog doesn’t include three of the key attributes of successful blogs – no direct commenting (comments go to someone for review first), no RSS webfeed and no trackback capability. Nevertheless, it’s a great addition to the world of executive/leadership blogging by a controversial business and political thinker and influencer.
