My programming blog is now private, and will remain as such until I can review its content.
This is due to a new confidentiality agreement sent to everyone by my employer. The terms used to describe intellectual property are ambiguous, and while its concept of proprietary information does exclude “generic knowledge that I would have learned in the course of similar employment elsewhere”, the clauses about source code are ambiguous enough to warrant a concern.
While I feel that the source code and programming examples I shared were generic, and were written at home to describe solutions for programming problems I solved at work, coded into examples that referred to no proprietary information from my employer, I can’t be certain that the content doesn’t contravene their definition of intellectual property.
My apologies to anyone who found this looking for the other blog, and to my followers of the other blog.
