Yes, I read that too - but it said he "leaves" his job. The article I read gave the impression that he was just leaving for a DC job, not fired. I read it like he revealed his identity because he was leaving and would not be able to write the column any more because he would no longer be there.

And there is a HUGE difference between trying to write anonymously about the goings-on and shenanigans of your workplace and writing as a real person about your real life away from work. There are boundaries - and I suspect there will be even more as blogging becomes more mainstream - but I think if you're not trashing your employer or your co-workers or doing anything too extreme, you're generally pretty safe (depending on what you do for a living, of course). ;)
