A quick update on the best entries so far in our quest to get Lessig down to three seconds or less…
Remember the idea is to convy just enought that someone would be interested to engage in conversation about the larger issues while giving them some glimpse of insight into the issues from Lessig’s talks and writing.
By my judging here are our top three entries thus far:
Freedom Pending by Usibilitymustdie: Wonderfully sarcastic. Somehow doesn’t have a sense of urgency to find out more. I could be wrong. Comment below.
Shakespeare didn’t copyright, why should you? by boringbot: This one gives me that “hmm yeah why should I?” response.
Free Mickey by Frequency451: Just plain nice, has a sense of urgency and you get that ‘in shackles’ kind of feeling. Also this one is more to the point that the often sighted “free the mouse” web buttons.
I don’t think we’ve seen our best work thus far so keep ‘em coming. Feel free to post further suggestions below and remember our prize, an in print O’Reilly book of your choice (from my pocket), will be choosen on Sept 19th/02
Can we do a bit better?????
