This one's for you Ribitch and Spig!
Sorry, guys; it wasn't Robert Scoble. A Microsoft temporary
employee found himself on the receiving end of a pink slip this week
when he published a photo of the Microsoft campus's shipping and
receiving loading dock on his blog, a personal Web journal. Microsoft
fired him because it claimed the photo was a security risk, claiming
that people viewing the photo would be able to figure out the loading
dock's location. The former employee later admitted that what he did
was wrong, though he offered up an interesting conspiracy theory for
those who are into that kind of thing: The photo he took shows a
pallet of brand-new Apple Computer Power Mac G5 computers being
unloaded. Was that the real reason he was fired?
