Boing Boing: iTunes creates a security hole?

*Jawdroppingly* idiotic rant from Cory, trying to draw anti-DRM points from a completely non-DRM-related security flaw in iTunes. Is it my imagination, or is his signal to ranting-clueless-fuckwit ratio dropping of late?

Any suggestions for what I should write on Joy's head when she's sleeping?

Bill Hicks: Salvation

I happened upon this last week, and it’s bloody fantastic. A complete unedited 100-minute Bill Hicks act from 1992. Due to his early death, Hicks gets a lot of messianic hyperbole, but listening to this act, it’s a reminder that a) he was a very smart guy getting angry at the same stuff that’s still going on today in America, and b) he is an incredibly talented stand-up, whose skill at reading the audience and winning them back round with dick jokes after losing them to rants on US politics is nothing short of masterful.

is an ebay fraud seller free? | Ask MetaFilter

This is a long MeFi thread, but worth reading. Summary: Someone posts to mefi asking if it’s possible to catch an ebay scammer. Turns out said questioner *is* an eBay scammer. Collected MeFi masses turn up addresses, bio, photos, etc on scammer. Now in police hands.
