Buy him out boys!

MSNBC is reporting that Microsoft fired a blogger for posting a Mac photo. (link via Steve)

Apparently the employee was a temp working for Xerox who posted a picture of G5s being unloaded at Microsoft’s headquarters on his personal blog. All the details aren’t clear, but the story underscores the difficulty for bloggers of balancing professional concerns with personal ones.

I’ve often dealt with this, especially concerning my employment at the BGEA. I could tell you some stories. I’ve also hesitated in what I say, especially when it comes to certain major organizations (sometimes more than others).

Of course unemployment is a great solution to those disclosure concerns.
