Lawrence Lessig, founder of the Creative Commons and Change Congress, gave an amazing interview with Charlie Rose a couple of nights ago that I encourage everyone to see. Interview topics included everything from the history of intellectual property, to the internet as the driving force of major cultural change, to Lessig’s involvement with Barak Obama over the years and how to change both the function and public perception of the legislature.
Lessig is definitely making it to the Hero Wall over here at SRF.STN HQ.
P.S. Although in full-disclosure I have not yet read it, I would encourage everyone to pick up his latest book “REMIX – Making Art and Commerce Thrive in a Hybrid Economy” as I’m sure it will be an amazing read.
