bloggin legit

In case you're planning on blogging about anything you think might get you in trouble, or if you know someone who is, EFF is your friend.

In particular, check out these new Blogging Guidelines for Students. They focus on the rights of student bloggers.

One high schooler recently received a settlement of $117,500 for the
violation of his First Amendment rights, but not before he was suspended for a week and barred from going on his class trip.

Not that this is a particularly good way to get some extra cash, its nice to hear that schools aren't getting away with blanket persecution (prosecution?).
So, don't let the man get to you. Keep on truckin' ... err bloggin.
