BusinessWeek has an interesting story online entitle "Big Brother is Reading Your Blog."
Something new I learned is that the term for corporate bloggers getting fired is dooced.
The story says:
Corporate bloggers are also coping with increased vigilance by bosses. Getting fired for blog entries is so common now that it's come to be characterized by the term "dooced." Dooce.com, a blog kept by one of the dooced, has seen its traffic more than double over the past year, according to Web site ranker Alexa. One networker who asked not to be identified says she regularly peppers her entries with fiction so she can avoid being identified by her employer.
This has obviously brought about the opportunity to provide a more anonymous environment to blog and socialize, which the story goes into as well.
Thank goodness I'm my own boss. Never feeling hindered by having an employer watching what I say is incredibly comforting. Freedom of speech isn't so free if it gets you fired.
