I came across this article via Digger’s Realm.
Wired News reports,
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.
The rise of blogging over the past few years has, inevitably, given way to another phenomenon, as companies are forced to confront employees’ easy access to ranting and raving about work in public online forums like Blogger and LiveJournal.
This, in short, sucks ass.
