Here's the interesting thing. She was allegedly terminated for blogging. At issue were two posts, concerning Friendster's conversion from JSP to PHP. These posts got Slashdotted, then came the coverage in Jon Udell's InfoWorld column.
Reading these posts, I can hardly believe that these should be grounds for termination. Seems kind of ironic that a pioneer in social software should fire one of its employees for practicing the art.
Perhaps there's something else going on -- there almost always is in these situations. But this certainly doesn't say anything good about Friendster's company culture. Sad.
