February 18, 2013  ·  Lessig  · Reblogged from  Tumblr

On Saturday I returned from .GE — where I didn’t sleep at all. Saturday I slept some, but last night critical, as I had two final days to put the final parts on the lecture I must give Tuesday: Aaron’s Laws.

But alas, at 1am, my incredibly sweet 3 year old daughter did what she has now formed the habit of doing — coming into our bed, flopping about like a stranded fish for 15 minutes, and then falling asleep. 

Usually it is a minor annoyance. Jetlag turned it into the end of the nights sleep. So at 2am, I got up to begin today’s work. 

15 hours later, I’m finished for the day. 

This is a really difficult talk to craft. In principle. And in practice. There are too many points where I need a strategy to avoid spinning into blubbery. I am hopeful that if I can persuade sweet Tess of the wonders of her own bed, one more day’s preparation will do it. 

If you can make it, come. If you can’t, it will be webcast. The info for both is here.

    Brilliant lecture! Thank you for articulating what I have been thinking and feeling. Even though I didn’t know Aaron – intrinsically I knew something was wrong when I read about the circumstances leading to his death.

    More importantly, he struck a human chord while learning about who he was. It is clear he has left an important iconic legacy as a global citizen wanting to make the world a better place. His (com)passion, awareness and sense of equality and justice not only shames me of how oblivious I’ve become over the years, but has rekindled the need to find my fight and become involved again.

    That was a brilliant lecture, Professor Lessig.

    It opened my eyes wide to the depth of the problem we, as a society, NEED to solve when it comes to the current state of the laws pertaining to computer fraud and such.

    I was honored to listen. Thank you.

    From far away New Zealand, I found your talk riveting. Congratulations on the richly deserved Chair. I am deeply saddened by the unnecessary loss of a thoughtful, caring human being due to the mindless and insensitive actions of public officials. For me, the video of your talk captured the best and the worst of the United States. I posted it on Facebook.

    Its like you read my thoughts! You seem to know so much about this,
    like you wrote the ebook in it or something. I believe that you simply can do with a few
    p.c. to drive the message house a little bit, however instead of that, that is fantastic blog.
    An excellent read. I will certainly be back.
