When it comes to fair and open standards that benefit all, Lessig has to be one of the more brilliant minds you’ll ever read or listen to on the subject. Now he’s thinking about running for Congress, but he doesn’t want to just serve…he wants to change congress.
He has 3 things he’s basing that change on…
1. Accept no money from PACs or lobbyists
2. Work to end Congressional earmarks
3. Support publicly-financed campaigns

I’m keeping my fingers crossed he’ll run. We need real change in Washington, and a guy like Lessig could do just that.
