Dennis Smith at WirelessJobs points us to this video of a man quitting his job, with, uh, well, with flair. It's clear that he has no intention of ever returning - and in fact he's using the video to promote his new site (which I'm afraid to go to).
For all of those Human Resources people who wonder about how video and blogs are going to affect their workplace - how do you stop this story from getting out to the local news when it is spread around the world in a day?
Shouldn't you know something about blogging and video before this happens to you? Reading blogs is no longer something just for techies. If you are in charge of your company's public persona, it it your responsibility to look out for your reputation. Yes, this guy is an extreme example, but I would hate to be the HR manager responsible for learning why this video is all over the web, and how you're powerless to stop its spread.
Most CEO's will see this and think a lawyer can sit a note and get it taken down. They are wrong. Threatening to sue just causes other bloggers to post it - far more bloggers than you have lawyers. So what can you do?
