Wired News: Blogs May Be a Wealth Hazard

BILD headlines at Wired? Wired News: Blogs May Be a Wealth Hazard

What do a flight attendant in Texas, a temporary employee in Washington and a web designer in Utah have in common? They were all fired for posting content on their blogs that their companies disapproved of.

Actually it is not so hard really when you think about it. Don’t think you can blog anonymously. Currently I try to write my posts so that anyone I work with or my parents could read it. Of course that limits some of my rants. It’s a small price to pay to feel secure in what you write.

Of course it may be fun to find out first-hand that M$ is using Mac hardware. If the leak can be traced to you, it is not so much fun as the temp mentionned above had to find out.
