Lessig '08 - Change Congress.
This site hosts this video to explain the launch of two exploratory projects -- first, a Change Congress movement, and second, my own decision whether to run for Congress in the California 12th.
I have decided I want to give as much energy as I can to the Change Congress movement. I will decide in the next week or so whether it makes sense to advance that movement by running for Congress.
Many friends have weighed in on that decision -- both strongly in favor and strongly opposed. Many more have joined draftlessig.org and a Facebook group asking me to consider it.
Watch or listen and you will understand some of my reasoning. Feel free to send your thoughts or advice to firstname.lastname@example.org (though please excuse any slowness in my response).
More ways to show your support to follow shortly...
|I wholeheartedly support Lessig's Change Congress ideas and would love to see him in Congress. But, quite frankly, I'm hoping that Obama wins the presidency and Lessig is our nation's first CTO.|
