It’s happening because he asked a question on his blog. Why couldn’t companies use blogs to disseminate information. “The Commission should make clear that options such as adequately noticed website postings, fully accessible webcasts and electronic mail alerts would satisfy Regulation FD.”
The chairman of the SEC responded to the blog post in a comment (and by mail). Important and amazing conversations are happening out here, right in public.
I feel lucky work for someone like that. He asked a question and he’s changing things-pushing evolution in communication because of our new tools.
