You will note a new ‘Widget’ in the sidebar which says, ‘Draft Lessig!’

Who is the Lessig person? He is a professor of law at Stanford Law School and founder of its Center for Internet and Society. He is founder and CEO of the Creative Commons and a board member of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and of the Software Freedom Law Center, launched in February 2005. He is best known as a proponent of reduced legal restrictions on copyright, trademark and radio frequency spectrum, particularly in technology applications. Here’s a collection of a few of his writings. Basically he’s what we used to call a ‘Futurist’ only, as you may have noticed, the future is pretty much right now.

He is associated with Senator Obama but this isn’t about Obama. It’s about getting people who are knowledgeable on technology into the Congress. We really need that to happen folks. You do remember Senator Ted ‘Tubes’ Stevens don’t you. You do know that America is steadily falling behind in the technological race don’t you?

Check Lessig and what he’s saying out. You might start here…………..
