“theconnor” – New Rules

There are lesson in this life that stick by you. There is an old saying that goes around the backrooms of the Massachusetts Statehouse, it was coined as bagmen, and backdoor deals were set in motion. The sage advice is “Do not write it, if you can say it, do not say it if you can nod it, do not nod it if you can wink it.” This is great advice in all walks of life. It was first thought we had when we first heard of “theconnor” tweet on tweeter. After getting a job at Cisco he put up a Tweet about it, which read:

“Cisco just offered me a job! Now I have to weigh the utility of a fatty paycheck against the daily commute to San Jose and hating the work.”

There are people well paid at Cisco that worry about company branding and their presence on the Internet, is it no wonder this was flagged pretty quick over there. The Internet community is rough when it wants to be. The man tried to hide he set his Twitter account to private and deleted all information from a home page. The news was out and there was red meat to be had. Within the next six hours, his identity was found out, a YouTube video made, and a domain purchased. The web page was recovered through Google Cache. This is not the first and it will not be last so member next time “theconnor” just wink it, and take the fatty paycheck on the bright side he does not have to worry about the lousy commute.
