thinglets: Lawrence Lessig and the Ethics of Openness

If you can give up one syndicated sit-com tonight and devote 18 commercial-free minutes to an empassioned Lawrence Lessig speaking on the ethics and left/right politics of "openness" as it relates to creativity.

That it is another fine example of a TED talk goes without saying, but it's nice to see the fervor that Lessig devoted to copyright alone has started to transcend other realms as well.

Be thankful for the localized TEDx talks around the world, because, quite frankly, the original TED conference itself, with it's auditorium of millionaires, doesn't seem too open to me.
