A reminder of an event I mentioned here on the blog last week -- LIVE from the NYPL and WIRED Magazine are hosting a roundtable discussion with Lessig, Shepard Fairey, and Steven Berlin Johnson this Thursday Feb. 26 in NYC. The event is titled "Remix: Making Art and Commerce Thrive in the Hybrid Economy" which is also the title of Lessig's book. I'm told the discussion will be about the big picture ideas and issues in Lessig's book, and was actually organized long before the AP/Obama poster/who-took-that-photo "shitstorm" -- so they won't be covering Shepard's legal issues, per se, but rather the meta cloud from which that conflict, and related conflicts and opportunities, have emerged. Tickets here, $25 general admission and $15 library donors/seniors/students. Completely inappropriate side-note: all the fellas in the promo image above add up to an awfully handsome lot, no? (thanks, Brad Grossman and Melanie Cornwell)

Glen says, "Once again proves he's got it together more than most." Agreed. Completely inappropriate side-note: Dude with the bowtie crackin' me up.
