Lessig moves on

Larry Lessig is seeking fresh pastures. Here’s the announcement for his Last Word on Free Culture.

Creative Commons founder and Stanford professor Lawrence Lessig is giving his final presentation on Free Culture, Copyright and the future of ideas at Stanford’s Memorial Auditorium on January 31st, 2008 from 1pm-2pm. After 10 years of enlightening and inspiring audiences around the world with multi-media presentations that inspired the Free Culture movement, Professor Lessig is moving on from the copyright debate and setting his sights on corruption in Washington.

Hmmm… If you think copyright is hard, then political corruption is something else. Instead of starting with Washington, though, maybe he could cut his teeth on Ireland, and specifically the Fianna Fail* governing party.

*Footnote: for those unfamiliar with my country, I should explain that Fianna Fail (Irish for ‘Soldiers of Destiny’ btw) is the political wing of the Irish construction industry.
