Fired!

Another blogger goes down. Be smart about what you blog, people!

Mark Jen started work at Google on January 17, and posted his first comments on his new blog almost immediately. As far as Jen was concerned, the blog was for his girlfriend and a few others to read — he posted a link to it in his America Online user profile, but never got more than a hundred hits per post. Until, that is, Nathan Weinberg of the blog InsideGoogle found the site, and bloggers started linking to Jen?s revealing posts about adjusting to life at Google. Less than a month later, Jen is an out-of-work internet celebrity.
