also wondered why we did not hear anything from him for the past two months :(

about iFixit: I like these kind of sites. I love working on my own muscle cars – does anybody know a site for fixing cars? i also like this site where I can search parts and accessories in spare part catalogues without ordering the paper issue: http://www.who-sells-it.com/c/automotive-antique-and-classic-car-parts-1800.html

@Two Ball Cane,

yes, please – i’m also interested into that documentary. ist it in english or dutch?

Because of Harvard’s endowment problems, wasn’t Harvard Law School cutting positions?

Off the grid for two months. Hope nothing happened to him or he is not too depressed over recent political events.

I figured recent events in the Boston area, elites running into legal trouble, at the hands of common citizens would bring hiim out.

(AP) – 55 minutes ago

BOSTON — A Boston University student has been ordered to pay $675,000 to four record labels for illegally downloading and sharing music. Joel Tenenbaum, of Providence, R.I., admitted he downloaded and distributed 30 songs. The only issue for the jury to decide was how much in damages to award the record labels.

Although I think Lessig is on record as saying the Harvard prof’s attempted legal defense of fair use was stretching it, but Lessig was arguing for jury nullification.

In Harvard I guess that they did not teach not talking back to the police, or if you are going to steal music (and people did it with cassettes decades ago) don’t do it in public and don’t sell pirated cassettes on the street. Also take things lawyers or politicians say, not as 100% lies, but with skepticism.

A Remix Manifesto”. apperently i’m not the only one who thought it a good film.
by the way, i’m sorry for getting you name wrong. i see now that it is “Lawrence Lessig”. sorry. and i now see the amount of spelling mistakes. Oops.

(maybe you’ve even seen it before!).
good luck with your activities.

Having my experience from the free software movement, I’m critical of Attribution-NonCommercial licenses put out by Creative Commons, since their non-free. The benefit of the free software definition, as opposed to Creative Commons (lack of one), is it avoids the hair splitting possibilities of “commercial advantage or private monetary compensation”. Besides sidestepping possible confusion of “commercial purposes”, the free software idea has the added side effect of granting freedom — to use the work “for any purpose”. Even nuclear warfare.

And a fabulous point that they have expanded their (fairly) static and (certainly) expensive model by turning to their crowd. How cool!

My favorite: The Banana Teardown. iFixit would never have posted this (it is off-topic, after all), but it’s hilarious. http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/Banana/811/1

Thanks – keep up the great work!

I don’t know which is better and I’m not affiliated in either site, but might as well mention their competitor: http://www.wikihow.com/Main-Page – and sure enough they use a CC license, too.

We made it! :)

On behalf of my fellow party members I feel inclined to thank you for being among the most inspiring advocates of this wonderful new era we have been blessed to be part of. Keep up the good fight!

Cheers,
