Lessig on government failures and corruption

Another great Lessig keynote. Interesting analogy between the famous Pentium FDIV flaw and the current government's flaws and the absurdities of todays approach to the most fundamental questions we need to address.

Lessig on Obama and Clinton

Lessig @ UPenn 4 Barack


I've been asked by many people my current position about the US politics. Furthermore, I've been asked whether I support Obama or Clinton (for some reason nobody thinks I can be for McCain... :P). I generally see and hear very superficial arguments and sadly very label-oriented, eventually everything goes down to race, sex, blind political orientation without a real sense of the facts. Democrats are X, Republicans Y, women Z and so on, and the only thing to support their thesis is their personal experience or even their general inclination. No real reasoning takes place, there is no research, global data taken into account. Leave away the moral issues, forget about personal integrity. There are, however, some who really think for themselves and who present their view with intelligence and coherence throughout their career. One of these people is Lawrence Lessig.

Lessig 08 - finally a good person running for congress

Lawrence Lessig needs no introduction. I deeply respect him and he may be running for congress. I want you to know that I endorse Larry, he can finally make a difference, he's a person who proved to be worthy of my respect, which not many have earned..



There is also a facebook group which now counts almost 3k users and it's growing by the blink of an eye. If you are American I suggest you to look into this. For you own good and for the good of mankind.

(Video) Prometeus - The Media Revolution: from 2.0 to 42?

Wow. I could not believe this video was made by 'CasallegioAssociati', the same people that run Beppe Grillo's blog. A provoking, (not really flawless) prediction of the future of media, surely interesting in so many aspects.
