You can read the book in-world, now you can watch a lecture of the book, too. Thanks to Torrone Trumbo of Make Magazine, it's possible to view a 2002 Lessig audio/video lecture on free culture. It's streaming on Make Land in Tenera, and since it's the ideal brief on Free Culture the book, I'm hoping to put together a watching party there in the next few days. Make Land is worth a visit besides the video, with a giant-sized, readable copy of the print magazine featuring an essay on Second Life by Austin futurist Bruce Sterling, and a how-to for building a potato cannon. Not to mention the Second Life Hacks Sandbox for an upcoming O'Reilly book of the same name, and an SL MAKE Faire to showcase the best in tinkering and gadgetry, both in-world and out.

The video is also playing at the Pooley Auditorium, where Lessig himself will appear on Wednesday.


Though reservations to the event are already full-up, I'm still compiling a standby/will call list to accomodate any cancellations. To get on the standby list, IM me (Hamlet Linden).

In addition to text repeaters that will be available to anyone who requests them, I'm also working with a Resident who plans to video capture the event, and stream that video back into Second Life-- sort of like watching a virtual CSPAN broadcast from a virtual television (if we can pull it off.)

2ND UPDATE, 1/16, 3:32PM:

I'm hosting a video watching party on Make Land in 2.5 hours. Event listing here.
