James Boyle lectures on the public domain, London, Mar 10

James Boyle, author of the amazing book The Public Domain, sez,
Just a note to say that I am giving a lecture March 10 at 6pm at London's RSA on my new book, The Public Domain: Enclosing the Commons of the Mind. The lecture hall is gorgeous -- Cory has been a frequent speaker there -- it has a fabulous series of paintings on the theme of "Progress" by James Barry, featuring earnest waistcoated men with theodolites and many scantily clad young women whose main hope appears to be that The Progress of Human Culture is going to give them something more substantial to wear than a precariously secured bedsheet. The mural is worth the price of admission alone (free but you must register). Following that I'll be giving the first Arcadia Lecture at Cambridge on Cultural Agoraphobia and the Future of the Library March 12. Hope to see UK BB'ers at one of these events...
The Public Domain: enclosing the commons of the mind (Thanks, Jamie!)


  1. Hmm. I wonder if I can convince him to give a lecture in my neck of the woods, maybe this Summer…

    Think, think, think!

    I know. Two words:
    “Lobster Festival”.

    Please, please, please!!!
