A livejournal entry by this lady changed an entire industry (although not too much). Who is she? What did she do?

Cracked by: Bharath , KK , Ananth , Sumanth Patlolla , Rogi , Supritha Maiya and Shwetha Maiya

Answer:
Erin Hoffman. Created a blog called the “EA Spouse” where she described the way EA employees were being overworked. The post caused a huge furore and a few changes in the industry, and slightly better working conditions.

Points assigned by AutoRaja. Review by lazy humans pending.
