Open Source? Tech Titans Struggle With Leaky Workers


Gizmodo reports Google is in a pitched battle with unknown employees who have been leaking to the press. Google staff has publicly protested against the company's work with the military. They're also against alleged plans to build a censored Chinese search engine. And they're also ticked off at the handling of sexual harassment allegations against executives. But Google isn't the only high-tech company with the challenge of leak stoppage. Fellow tech giant Facebook has also reportedly been cracking down on leakers. And an Amazon publicly chastised “the genius leaking info” about the company’s nationwide search for a location for its second headquarters. The exec angrily urged the leaker to “stop treating the NDA you signed like a used napkin.”
