This is the link : Employee (http://www.winnetmag.com/windowspaulthurrott/Article/ArticleID/40679/windowspaulthurrott_40679.html)

About 1/4 to 1/2 way down the page is this qoute:

Sorry, guys; it wasn't Robert Scoble. A Microsoft temporary employee found himself on the receiving end of a pink slip this week when he published a photo of the Microsoft campus's shipping and receiving loading dock on his blog, a personal Web journal. Microsoft fired him because it claimed the photo was a security risk, claiming that people viewing the photo would be able to figure out the loading dock's location. The former employee later admitted that what he did was wrong, though he offered up an interesting conspiracy theory for those who are into that kind of thing: The photo he took shows a pallet of brand-new Apple Computer Power Mac G5 computers being unloaded. Was that the real reason he was fired?

Now that is hilarious, almost as good as Bill Gates' photo as a kid in an ad for Apple that I say about 2 weeks ago in another thread on this site!
