Good News: web-surfing at work is OK

You won't be fired, at least not in New York Web-surfing worker can't be fired:
Saying surfing the web is equivalent to reading a newspaper or talking on the phone, an administrative law judge has suggested that only a reprimand is appropriate as punishment for a city worker accused of failing to heed warnings to stay off the Internet.

Administrative Law Judge John Spooner reached his decision in the case of Toquir Choudhri, a 14-year veteran of the Department of Education who had been accused of ignoring supervisors who told him to stop browsing the Internet at work.

There is nothing in the descion that allows for blogging from work.

If you can get away with it, go for it....
