Another person fired over blog

Mark Jen used to have a small technical-oriented blog read by a few people (much like your humble Technollama). Then he started working for Google and everything changed. He started using his blog ninetyninezeros to descibe conditions at Google. He wrote some candid posts about his short life with the company, something that did not sit well with the powers that be. Only eleven days after starting, he was fired.

When did Google join the Dark Side?

According to what I read, he used his blog to post confidential information about internal financial data (legally not allowed) and unreleased products (not allowed by the company). I'd like to know more information about the whole thing, but people don't seem to be talking.
