The new stuff at home plus the burden of battling spamalots online made it impossible to continue.

But after kind prodding and lots of very kind help, lessig.org wakes from its slumber. I am endlessly grateful to Joseph Mornin, who has architected the revival, successfully porting the old into a more manageable platform.

For now, this place will gather stuff published elsewhere first. I will continue to feed my Tumblr blog, because I am still intrigued to understand that community. Posts on HuffingtonPost get automatically ported over. We need to tinker a bit to get the Atlantic stuff carried over.

But meanwhile, welcome back. And if you’re so excited you just can’t stand it, then feel free to give generously to the two entities I care most about: Rootstrikers and Creative Commons.
