Abel Lenz might not be talking to reporters on Twitter, but his LinkedIn profile speaks for itself: the man AOL CEO Tim Armstrong fired during a conference call for taking pictures no longer works at Patch.
Lenz, whose Twitter timeline indicates that he is a frequent photo-taker, was acting as the Patch conference call's amateur photographer. Two minutes in, Armstrong can be heard saying, in front of the 1,000 people (including Jim Romenesko, oops!) listening in: "Abel, put that camera down." Followed by: "You're fired. Out."

Well. He's not completely without work, at least. According to his LinkedIn profile, he's still a teacher at Miami Ad School's Brooklyn campus.
