Microsoft Blogging Burnout?

From Brier Dudley today, commenting on the impending hiatus of Dare Obasanjo:

Are Microsoft bloggers getting burned out? Maybe they’re cutting back on personal blogs because they’re working on new stuff that isn’t bloggable yet. Like Ray Ozzie, who hasn’t posted anything since August 2006.

A blog that hasn’t been updated in 18 months isn’t a blog, it’s a — well, abandonware/deadpool/FAIL come to mind.

The only Microsoft blogger I know personally hasn’t posted in a few months. *cough* *cough*. He writes good stuff too. Perhaps it’s all part of a grand strategy coming down from corporate to discredit blogging generally, thus ensuring Google can never get any monetization opportunity out of the Blogger platform.

On the other hand, I can’t say that I know any Google or Yahoo! bloggers personally. Does anyone keep statistics on the number of bloggers per capita at big tech companies, complete with comScore numbers, etc.? That sort of public competition would probably spur some lazybones onto their keyboards late at night after the kids are in bed.  Or at 5:26 PM, when the kids are saying “I’m hungry!”.  Gotta run!
