Submission + - Stallman Attacked by Ninjas (yale.edu)

vivIsel writes: When RMS took the stage to address the Yale Political Union, Yale's venerable parliamentary debate society, it was already an unusual speech: instead of the jacket and tie customary there, he sported a T shirt, and no shoes. But then he was attacked by ninjas. Apparently some students took it into their head to duplicate an XKCD webcomic before a live audience — luckily, though, Stallman didn't resort to violence. Instead, he delivered an excellent speech about DRM.

Submission + - Buckley on upstart student journalists

sprint writes: William F. Buckley Jr, the famous (infamous?) conservative intellectual, like many, is no lover of traditional political journalism, or moneyed politics, and his latest column makes no bones about that. But he's found a cause to champion against the mainstream media: the revolutionary — to hear him tell it — folks at TheScoop08, who claim to want to change the way political journalism and politics happen in this country. Whether or not they'll manage that, they're getting a lot of attention from the devotees of the man many call the founder of neoconservatism.

Submission + - Internet Conquering American Idol?

vivIsel writes: All sorts of media outlets have been a-buzzing by the saga of Sanjaya Malakar, an American Idol contestant who might just be headed for victory — but the thing is, he can't really sing. Thanks to the efforts of a lot of Indian-American patriots, some teenyboppers, and perhaps most importantly, the blogosphere and related entities, Fox's television behemoth (American Idol is the most-watched show in America) might be headed for an embarrassing moment. At least, that's what Dave Della Terza, the founder of votefortheworst.com is hoping for. The Times is covering the story, as is the Washington Post. The Boston Globe has its own cynical take on the affair.
