p2p politics

lawrence lessig is one of my heroes. read his blog. think about his ideas. or, if that’s too much effort, check out his his p2p politics site. he put it together as a simple tool to allow people to share political content by emailing links to an archive of political ads.

it’s supposedly a non-partisan forum; he has invited kerry, bush and nader to make content available on the site. at present, content has been contributed by moveon.org and the kerry campaign; the bush campaign has yet to contribute anything. one commenter notes that the libertarian candidate was not, apparently, invited.

regardless of my own political leanings, i think it’s important to have access to all of this content. for example, i’m probably one of the few people in the US who hasn’t seen any political ads, most notably any of the bush campaign’s provocative ads. lessig’s site could provide a single archive for all of this information, allowing people to share it and think about it as we come down the home stretch….hopefully, bush will make his ads available.
