Information about Microsoft Projects Leaked

Data Leak

What a coincidence! Yesterday I posted an article about protecting your brand in the web 2.0 jungle and today a nice story was reported on Slashdot. A very nice example of bad communication on the web 2.0.

Robert Morgan, a Microsoft Research employee, wrote on his LinkedIn profile: “Working in high-security department for research and development involving strategic planning for medium and long-term projects. Research & Development projects including 128-bit architecture compatibility with the Windows 8 kernel and Windows 9 project plan. Forming relationships with major partners: Intel, AMD, HP and IBM.

Oh oh! Microsoft’s plans are to make Windows 8 a 128-bit operating system. Robert’s account has been quickly removed.
