thug.jpgDisturbing news: danah boyd had her purse stolen and ripped apart by one of the "rappers" that wandered into her and John Perry Barlow's party at SXSW. Fortunately I was getting crazy with my camera at the end of the night (photos). danah contacted me to see if I had more photos and timestamps for the police. I did, and the perp has been identified in one of the blurry photos. Read about it on danah's site.

Now everyone in Austin gonna be on the lookout for these dudes. I wouldn't be surpised if a Citizen Blogger spots one of them before the police.

The message is clear: Don't fuck with bloggers.
