Speaking of circles, one has to wonder about the management
at Friendster. They recently
fired an employee for, apparently, blogging (see this
site for additional links) that they had switched from
JSP to PHP. If this is true,
and I don’t have any reason to doubt it, you have to wonder
what closet they keep their brains in because they surely
aren’t walking around with them.
Even if you take it at face value, it’s not like you can’t
tell they’ve switched to PHP since the extensions on their pages
changed. So if a cluefull person knows of the change, can you
still claim it is a trade secret? I…don’t…think…so.
In any case, if you are a member of Friendster, you may want
to re-evaluate your use of that service and take a look at one
of their competitors (see this site that lists a few alternatives).
