Lessig Sings the Blues: "Walden Pond Blues"

Here's a great mashup of a Larry Lessig riff on Thoreau and political transparency, mixed with a slow, soulful blues, to excellent effect. "Walden Pond Blues" was mixed by Admiral Bob, who performs the music under a CC-BY license.

  1. Uhm Pure free market and you get robber barons, as the ex-USSR discovered when they tried to jump to capitalism as we like to describe it rather than as we practice it. Be careful what you invoke.

  2. Lessig has always received a warm and uncritical welcome from Wired and Boing Boing. The man is a disingenuous master at self promotion I’ll give him that, unfortunately he is also overflowing with ignorant ideas.  I think he would be a more useful member of society if he starred in a reality show where he was forced to share an apartment with Stallman.  At least we could get some entertainment out of those two.
