Submission + - Googlers gagged on Real Names; Protests coming (blogspot.com)

An anonymous reader writes: There has been ongoing controversy over Google's demand for Real Names from Google+ users, but comments from Googlers have slowed to a trickle. People inside the company are now reporting that, on pain of disciplinary action, they have been ordered not to speak externally on the issue. Google execs seem to be hoping that if everyone quiets down, the whole thing will just blow over.

Outside of Google, though, things seem to be heating up: Shava Nerad, Development Director and former Executive Director of the Tor Project, is organizing protests of Google's heavy-handed Real Name policy. They will be held outside of Google Cambridge, and Google offices everywhere, starting this Friday.
