A British person has been sacked for writing a weblog. This kind of hysterical overreaction is exactly why I don’t mention work these days. Officially, I’ve been told that it’s OK as long as I don’t mention the name of the company or of any individual who works there and don’t update during working hours, which seems fair enough to me. The problem is that there’s nothing in writing to that effect so it’d be all to easy for them to change their minds. Safer all round if I just say nothing.
