So Mark Jen is fired from google for blogging about confidential financial info (that was the reason they gave). Blogs have no editorial process.
Someone accidentally posts google’s financial forecast, you know the kind they won’t release publicly because of their “no guidance” policy, on their company website. Corporate websites do have editorial processes (OK, if you are going to argue that they don’t, let’s talk about big companies with lots of money….I used to recruit for microsoft.com…you don’t just pop stuff up there). My question is whether someone is in trouble and whether there’s some accountability for consistency in handling the “release of confidential financial data”. I’m not calling for anyone’s head, just asking.
