Special Guests


Copyright and net-governance guru Lawrence Lessig has just announced that Howard Dean will be guest-blogging over on his site while the good professor is away.

NEXT: That's Too Much Hell, Harry

  1. much better than the 20th century, and better than the 21st century is shaping up to be! at least for rich white folk 😀

  2. You don’t see libertarian or conservative candidates blogging.

    Harry Browne ran an online diary in the 1996 election, actually.

  3. Whoopee.

  4. That’s funny. Seems to me that there’s a lot of conservative and libertarian blogs. OK, maybe not a lot of conservative or libertarian _candidates_ blogging, but a lot of bloggers seem to be conservative or libertarian.

    A few years ago I campaigned for Tom Campbell, a libertarian-style Republican running against Dianne Feinstein for US Senate. He had served in the House and won an award for reluctance to spend taxpayer money. Every day or two he would answer e-mails and post the answers on his web page. (Even my FDR Democrat grandparents said “Well, if he’s careful about spending money that must be a good thing!”)

    Needless to say, he got stomped by Feinstein, alas.

  5. Yeah, blogs are like the reality TV of the Internet. Who gives a shit? Especially from a lefty. You don’t see libertarian or conservative candidates blogging.

  6. They’re too busy building a bridge to the 19th century.

  7. Reading Lessig’s site, I’m not so sure that he deserves a positive referral from H+R. Down a few items from his Dean announcement is a scaremongering, sneering response to a piece by Declan McCullagh on cable regulation. Lessig doesn’t even try to seriously address the idea of a principled opposition to government regulation; he dismisses it out of hand as something that “no one serious” believes. Yech.
