The new media term for getting fired for what you write in a blog (or also on a social networking site). It originated by a Web designer, Heather Armstrong, who was fired from her job due to the fact that she was writing about her job and colleagues on her Web site, dooce.com.
Heather's advice is to know your employer's rules for computer use, both in and out of the office. Blogging, even on your own time and with your own computer, may put you at risk for being fired. "Never write about work on the Internet unless your boss knows and sanctions the fact that you are writing about work on the Internet."
