bloggers beware!

And from the BBC.....

"There are more than five million blogs, or online diaries, and the number is growing.

But increasingly, people are landing in hot water with employers over blogs about their work.

A new term has emerged as a result. According to, to be "dooced" means "losing your job for something you wrote in your online blog, journal, website, etc."

In November, a US airline attendant calling herself Queen of the Sky was fired over "inappropriate images" on her anonymous blog.

She is currently filing a discrimination complaint with the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.

And more bloggers could be "dooce dodging" in 2005 as employers wake up to the technology, warns legal expert Nick Lockett from hi-tech law firm DL Legal."
