Mike Dillon, general counsel of Sun Microsystems, has launched a blog, which he calls the legal thing…. According to Geoffrey G. Gussis at InhouseBlog, Dillon is the first Fortune 500 GC to launch a blog. Dillon explains his reason for the move:

My primary motivation is a question that I am frequently asked. It comes in two forms. From others in my profession, it is articulated as: “What is it like being the General Counsel of a Fortune 500 company like Sun Microsystems?” From my children it is posed as: “Daddy, what do you DO at work all day?”

In the future, I’ll share with you my observations on life as a GC, my views on a variety of legal issues and business trends and my thoughts about what makes this company so unique.
