When work blogging gets out of hand

I missed this story about a so-called 'rogue' work blogger that went out at the end of March 2008.

It involved an employee of Cisco Systems who used his blog to wage 'a long, public battle against so-called patent trolls'.

The blog was initially viewed as a 'forum for information, not invective', yet it eventually led to the blogger (or employee of Cisco Systems, as it turns out to be) outing the under-hand, possibly illegal, practices of his employer.

It seems that both are likely to face criminal investigation.
