Mr Hanson was taking a pic of a truck off-loading a bunch of Mac G5-rods at the Microsoft campus up at Redmond and then post it at his blog as Even Microsoft wants G5s. Not at all mean or giving out any unknown secrets of Microsoft. Just a funny pic. Not. Reading his blog Of blogging and unemployment and learn how the Big Evil Empire of the Digital World is working. He got sacked. Point blanc.
Myself being hunted down by a multinational company and threaten with legal actions because of a simple publishing of a logo I can wonder in what way the Big Ones are able to get their information about "violations" even in a small blog as Hanson's. Echelon someone?
