The news that Adobe is to aquire Macromedia is affecting, profoundly, Macromedia bloggers.

Mike Chambers writes in his blog:

“Note, because this post contains some forward looking statements about the combination of our companies, and because we are now in a regulatory period, I have to include the legalese included below (it is longer than the actual post!).”

He continues:

“Also, because this weblog post is one of the documents that have to be turned over to regulators, I have to disable comments (as those technically become part of the document / post).”

And Mike is not the only one to be limited by all this. John Dowdell:

“Sorry I didn’t post today — I’ve been waiting on getting approval for a post — rare, and in this case, apparently low in the priority stack. I hope that this single post here is okay for apologizing for not posting at all today.”

Mike and John provide us with a healthy reminder that corporate blogs are part of the official corporate communication, and therefore subject to the rules that apply in situations like this.

I don’t think this is strange. I can’t help wonder, though, if it could be done differently? Is there a way to keep the conversation alive anyway? Couldn’t Macromedia’s approval process be faster so that blogs aren’t in legal blackout?

Thanks Kal!
