|First, a note about political firings at Google. They're always made to look like performance-based terminations. This is actually a nice thing to do, because it gives the targets time to find other jobs. In Silicon Valley, a 60-day PIP is more than enough severance to bridge to the next gig.|
Word coming out is that one person was, just this week, put on an unexpected 60-day PIP for sharing opinions of the Real Names policy on internal G+. It's likely that he's been set up to fail. If this is accurate, and I believe it is, there'll be more to tell in late December.
It's worth noting that individual Googlers have shown nothing but support for this person as the story has developed.
