In a sobering reminder that online social media is changing the way many companies do business in unforeseen ways, a federal court recently shot down an employer’s trade secret claim based largely upon the availability of information via the internet. In Sasqua Group, Inc. v. Courtney, a magistrate judge for the United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York held that although an employer’s customer list may have been a trade secret years ago, "the exponential proliferation of information made available through full-blown use of the Internet [presents] a different story." The district court subsequently adopted and approved the magistrate’s lengthy and detailed opinion.

Like a half-billion people before him, Simonetti joined Facebook and began typing in his status updates. But in this case, Simonetti’s only friends were a hand-picked roster of more than two dozen volunteers who agreed to sift through their news feeds for the duration of our experiment, dutifully recording any Phil sightings.

As our volunteers checked in with their reports, some remarkable findings began to emerge:

We created this site for those of you that have a song stuck in your head and you can’t get it out no matter what you do. Using the latest in reverse-auditory-melodic-unstickification technology, we’ve been able to allow our users to “unhear” songs by hearing equally catchy songs. So really all we’re doing is making you forget your old song by replacing it with another one… sorry. – via @swissmiss

In attendance: Tina, Sean, Val, Megan, Jenny, Mary
We had a great discussion about the staff response plan, and I got caught up in the conversation so didn’t take thorough meeting notes. Perhaps we need to rotate this duty?
Megan has put together a great foundation for the Choose Your Own Adventure Response Plan. She came up with five basic scenarios, which she’ll post to the group: positive, neutral, inaccurate, negative low risk, and negative high risk. We also added information-seeking/customer service as a sixth type.
