WSJ followup: baseless, unsupported, and wrong, yet they’re sticking by the story. http://www.lessig.org/2008/12/wsj-followup-baseless-unsuppor/ http://www.lessig.org/2008/12/wsj-followup-baseless-unsuppor/#comments Tue, 16 Dec 2008 21:59:37 +0000 http://lessig.org/blog/2008/12/wsj_followup_baseless_unsuppor.html a nice piece about the WSJ piece. The most depressing part of this whole cycle was the news that the WSJ was sticking by the story. On what basis, precisely? The charge that Obama was shifting policy was, and is, completely baseless. The charge that I had "shifted" my position was, and is, completely unsupported (and false). And the charge that Google was violating network neutrality principles has been shown (concisely by David Isenberg, one of the originals in this debate) to be just wrong -- no one who understands what "network neutrality" (or what we used to call this before it was smartly marketed, "end-to-end") is could believe that edge caching services, living in a competitive market, could raise NN concerns. So they're sticking by a story that's baseless, unsupported and wrong. Sounds like we know where the Bushies have gone to work now that they've left the White House. Update: So I've just had an email exchange with Christopher Rhodes, one of the authors of the piece. What surprised me most about the piece was that he was such a careful interviewer when we spoke, but that we didn't really speak about the issue they charged me with -- shifting -- and I was surprised he didn't ask or followup on that. Turns out he tried, writing to my assistant, but that I didn't speak with him. My assistant didn't know the context of our conversation, so her translation of the question didn't flag it. My apologies to Rhodes. Had we connected, the story would have been different. The mistake in not connecting was mine, no doubt. And the mistake convinces me that at least with respect to me, the story is a misunderstanding (and not, as suggested, bad faith). Important lesson for me, no doubt. But for others: Please send emails for me to me. I read and respond to every email I get (save the spam-ish sorts). And while I can be behind, if you don't get a response, I didn't get it.]]> Fred Benenson’s got a nice piece about the WSJ piece.

GuestBlog: this week’s guest – Tim Wu http://www.lessig.org/2006/05/guestblog-this-weeks-guest-tim/ http://www.lessig.org/2006/05/guestblog-this-weeks-guest-tim/#comments Mon, 01 May 2006 11:10:59 +0000 http://lessig.org/blog/2006/05/guestblog_this_weeks_guest_tim.html who.jpg I'm happy to announce that Tim Wu, one of the authors of a new and related book, Who Controls the Internet?, will guest blog (again) this week. This is also the last week of class at Stanford, so I'll be back in a real sense next week. The book is a great extension and critical development of some of Code-related ideas. It has an especially terrifying and extensive discussion of control in China, and is beautifully and simply written (with pictures, too!) Another must read for those in this space. Welcome back, Tim.]]>

I’m happy to announce that Tim Wu, one of the authors of a new and related book, Who Controls the Internet?, will guest blog (again) this week. This is also the last week of class at Stanford, so I’ll be back in a real sense next week.

The book is a great extension and critical development of some of Code-related ideas. It has an especially terrifying and extensive discussion of control in China, and is beautifully and simply written (with pictures, too!) Another must read for those in this space.

Welcome back, Tim.

Wu Blog No More http://www.lessig.org/2004/08/wu-blog-no-more/ http://www.lessig.org/2004/08/wu-blog-no-more/#comments Sun, 22 Aug 2004 20:27:28 +0000 http://lessig.org/blog/2004/08/wu_blog_no_more.html This is the end of my stewardship of the Lessig Blog. It has been a pleasure to meet many of you and I thank you for reading the web-log in Larry’s absence.

For the rest of the year you can find me either on the 7th floor of Columbia Law School, where I am a visiting professor, or back in Charlottesville/Washington DC. My email address can easily be found using a google search, which is probably why I get so much junk mail. I also have a lousy web site which stores much of my written work and other information.

Our next guest is Richard Posner. Mr. Posner works for the federal government, and enjoys writing, oral argument, and demolishing fields of study. He is fond of animals of most stripes and once owned a horse named “King.” Mr. Posner’s favorite film is the critically-maligned comedy Eight Heads in a Duffel Bag. He lives in Chicago.

Please join me in welcoming our guest to what promises to be a very interesting week.
