Talk given at TEDxNYED March 6, 2010. “A bit about what conservatives can teach the free culture movement. Playful. Remember.”
Lawrence Lessig gives a playful talk on lessons to be learned from conservatives about an “ecology of creativity” in remix culture. The talk is brilliant – funny and smart – but is also brilliantly done – a great example of using technology to communicate. Highly Recommended

He founded Stanford University’s Center for Internet and Society, is a founding member of the board of Creative Commons and has also been on the board of the Electronic Freedom Foundation.
[I want to give a shout out to Jimmy Guterman, whose post on boing boing brought this to my attention.]
