The Tale of Microsoft And Blogs

First, I notice this entry [1], describing how someone working as a contractor at Microsoft got canned because of the content of his blog. [2]

Then I notice THIS entry [3], stating that Microsoft is making lots of noise about wanting to buy up Google.

THEN, I remember that Blogger, which hosts this blog, is owned these days, by Google [4].

And now, I become mildly concerned. Look, granted the guy got stupid, (as most MAC loyalists tend to do,when given the chance about their machines…) but only mildly so, and certainly not to the level of canning the guy. How much less are freebie services like Blogger going to be worth.. how much easier will the axe fall…. will not such services be under serious scrutiny if MS buys Google?

Guess my backup site had better be ready soon.
