Be Careful What You Blog

A Microsoft employee thought that posting a picture that he snapped of a truck delivering Mac G5s on his blog was nothing more than innocent humor. Unfortunately, when his boss found out about the blog post, he was fired for a security violation. If you're going to blog about work, make sure it's okay with your boss first, especially if you're posting pictures. However, if the post was a picture of Microsoft software being delivered, I don't think he would've been fired, just given a warning. Maybe they've done this before, though, and just wanted to make a point this time. Hopefully he won't have too much trouble finding a new job. Link courtesy Leoville.
