Welcome to Info/Law, a blog about information, law, and most of all “Information Law.”
What is Information Law? We see it as an obvious convergence of intellectual property doctrine, communications regulation, First Amendment norms, and new technology. As information becomes the most precious commodity of the 21st century, the law surrounding it will have to evolve. That’s what we want to talk and think about here — along with various related and not-so-related threads (hey, “information” covers a lot of ground!).
Who are we? Right now we are both fellows at the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard Law School. It is an incredibly exciting place at the center of this expanding field of Information Law. I will let my co-blogger, the extraordinary Derek Bambauer, introduce himself. You can find out more about me here. We expect to have more folks come on board, as co-bloggers and guest bloggers, in the weeks ahead.
For now, we are thinking of this blog as a “beta,” because we are still practicing with this whole bloggership thing. So we especially welcome comments and feedback, not just about what we say but about how we say it.
This summer Derek and I are both headed out to become law professors — he at Wayne State and me at the University of Minnesota. We hope that this blog will sustain some of the “water cooler” chat that has made the fellowship at Berkman such a wonderful experience. And we hope you enjoy listening in…
