Creative Commons Swag Contest - you had to purchase some swag (how they raise annual funds, take a photo of yourself in flickr, winners get Lessig on their answering machine) -- part of an overall annual campaign that raise a lot of money - culminated with a party in Second Life.
This is a blog about the future. The year 2173 seems sufficiently far enough in the future to give us some perspective. As sure as we are of ourselves now, talking about the future - and making philanthropic investments - requires that we keep a sense of modesty and humor about what we are doing. Philanthropy is for the long-term - for the year 2173.
