Lessig’s Code 2.0 Published Today

When Larry Lessig’s book Code 1.0 was published back in 1999 it was an eye-opener. I still think of it as a wonderful tool to stimulate alternative thinking – certainly, I think the fact that it was read by policy-makers prevented knee-jerk regulation as a response to innovation. I recommended it to my daughter to get her thinking about privacy and regulation for a Dalhousie course, and she declared herself entranced by Lessig’s brain and clarity.

Today, after a lengthy period of collaboration and gestation the new edition of the book is released, and it’s also downloadable under a Creative Commons license.

You’ve no excuse not to read it this time.
