Lawrence Lessig’s Commentary on McCain’s Technology Policy

I’m going to try to let this post stand on its own. Lessig is sort of my hero. I can’t wait to finish reading for my exams, so I can volunteer for ChangeCongress.org. I feel the same way about the open source movement; and I’ll volunteer my services for OpenOffice.org, as well. For now, let’s hope that by the time I finish my exams, we’ll have a President (albeit elect) who is ready to change the downward spiral that is our current technology policy (do we even have one that Bush has the gall to articulate?). Please watch this video.

And if you’re intersted in learning more about this issue, here are a few great links:
