जो मेहनत करी, तेरा पेशा रहेगा,

न रेशम सही, तेरा रेशा रहेगा,

अभी कर ले पूरे, सभी काम अपने,

तू क्या सोचता है, हमेशा रहेगा !

Another job lost due to blogging

This time it was turn of a scottish bookseller in UK, Joe Gordon to loose his job due to what he wrote about his boss on his blog ! He worked with the bookshop Waterstone's at Edinbugh for 11 years before his boss found out about his writing at his blog.

It is believed to be the first time in Britain a blogger has been dismissed for what they published on the web.

Gordon occasionally used his online diary to vent steam about his working life. Waterstone's says Joe brought firm into disrepute !

Gordon still writes a blog, and he was snapped up to work at a rival book company who liked his writing.

"Until now, people have thought freedom of speech was a legal or government thing. Now we're waking up to the fact that a bigger threat to people may come from companies, so you have to think, will my boss read what I do?" Gordon said.
