The Web and the workplace

NPR had two interesting programs today on the Internet and how it can affect you professionally.

"Morning Edition" discussed the increasing trend of employers googling employees and searching social networking sites such as MySpace for information. Not suprisingly, people tend to state things on their blogs or MySpace profiles that they would never admit to their boss or colleagues.

"All Things Considered" looked at how employees use the computer while at work. Many surf the Web, check personal e-mail accounts, blog and instant message, while others are blocked from doing so by official company policies.
