Fired for talking bad about Microsoft?

From Reuters: AtStake confirmed that technology officer Dan Geer was no longer with the company, but would not say if he resigned or was fired. An AtStake statement said Geer was “no longer associated with the company” as of Tuesday, the eve of the report’s release. It added that Geer’s “participation in and release of the report was not sanctioned by AtStake…. The values and opinions of the report are not in line with AtStake’s views.”
Geer co-authored a report on the dangers of software monoculture, together with renowned security experts like Bruce Schneier.
