My friend Oliver turned me on to a remarkable article on Lawrence Lessig in the L.A. Times...trully remarkable stuff, and a great overview of the information war that is already upon us. Naturally the L.A. Times wants personal information and you must login to get to the story: just use the log/pass: thewhale/understands.
It's rare that you read a story of someone fighting a good fight for an unknown cause, and even rarer that it seems that person may actually make a difference--while at the same time, it's these small battles that make all the difference in this life. I really thought this article makes a wonderful introduction to topics every citizen on the Net should be aware of.
More on the trip to Maine and assorted issues soon, as I catch up.
