Shitcanned for Bloggin

Troutgirl: So I was terminated from Friendster today. The reason given was blogging.

Source: Scoble.

Randy: Judging by the posts that got Troutgirl canned, I would suspect she upset some of the JSP folk at Friendster, but we'll never know the truth, just two half-truths.

Cory Doctorow: Joyce Park is a coder who worked at Friendster, leading the charge to re-engineer the poky, Java-based back-end with fast PHP. She blogged about it, got slashdotted, got written up in the press -- and got fired. Even though there was nothing confidential in her blog posts, the new CEO shitcanned her.

Jeremy Zawodny: Now, pardon me while I got figure out how to cancel my Friendster account. I suggest you do the same.
