lessig slide

Lawrence Lessig OSCON 2002 keynote. Go here for the complete lessig talk and slides. It's brilliant.

If you understand this refrain, you're gonna' understand everything I want to say to you today. It has four parts:
  • Creativity and innovation always builds on the past.
  • The past always tries to control the creativity that builds upon it.
  • Free societies enable the future by limiting this power of the past.
  • Ours is less and less a free society.
