Dork Yearbook (link roundup)

Finally got around to mentioning Dork Yearbook, where people submit embarrassing photos of themselves. Bookmark it for the next time you're feeling down. Here's the direct link to little miss She-Ra.

And a few more links:

1. Jason Kottke calls out BoingBoing's and Gawker media's style of blogging for going past fair use to theft. A very simple test for fair use in the internet age is are you giving people a reason to leave your site and go visit wherever you took the intellectual property.

2. San Francisco's Giants current ad campaign includes banners that say, "Let's play with balls of fire."

3. How to use social engineering to commit identity theft on Facebook and other social networking sites. As people expose more and more about themselves online, it becomes easier and easier to impersonate them. Via.

4. Funniest story about the recent Somali pirate hostage drama.
