Lessig For Congress!

I would so vote for him, seriously!

From The Chronicle Of Higher Education
Technology blogs are abuzz today about the possibility of Lawrence Lessig, a Stanford University law professor, running for the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives previously held by Rep. Tom Lantos, a California Democrat who died this week. Mr. Lessig is well regarded by many legal and cyberspace scholars for his writings and speeches advocating that the U.S. legal system change to support the sharing of ideas and cultural and scientific works.

Jonathan Zittrain, a professor of Internet governance and regulation at the University of Oxford, notes on his blog today that Mr. Lessig has registered the domain name Change-Congress.com. And Jonathan Palfrey Jr., a law professor at Harvard University, has set up a “Draft Lessig for Congress” page on Facebook, the social networking site. The special election for Mr. Lantos’s seat is April 8.—Andrea Foster
