Just noticed that Lessig is considering running for congress this year. I am not quite sure how I feel about this yet. I have great admiration for all his work so far, but i guess i just have a bad feeling about all politicians in the beginning. Will Lessig be able to change anything from within congress, and does it really matter if he makes it or not, as long as he makes enough noise about the issues, in doing so? or will people see a failure to win, as a failure to the cause of creating a corruption free congress?
I dont know, but i think i will come to a better understanding after having thought about it for a day or two. To be hones, I really didnt think he seriously considered running.
