Hey, Larry — What exciting news! I very much hope it works out. I’ll do what I can to support you, including coming to (and maybe co-hosting) the March 13 breakfast event for you in Cambridge. – Larry Tribe

sorry. actually, i was thinking we should issue a press release announcing your support. i was about to ask your permission to do this and hit send instead of save by mistake. i’ve been blogging about it this morning and looking for other support. thanks for yours. the Change Congress strategy larry has adopted seems both practical and effective.

nice to see you in the square. you look fit. i hope you are well, considering all.

Sure, a press release would be fine. I’d like to see the text first, of course. Good to see you in the Square too. Yup, I’m fitter than ever, brain tumor and all. Actually, I’ve gotten into the proton radiation treatments. Once I got past the idea of having my head stuffed inside a special “immobilization” mask that covers my nose and mouth and makes it hard to breathe for 25 minutes every day, I took the opportunity to do some meditation, and now I look forward to the damn treatments! Hope you’re doing well. Take care,

Larry

Thank you Larry and Charlie,

As I will be explaining more extensively later today, after the most careful consideration, I have decided it would harm the cause more than help for me to run. On Friday we got the results from an extensive poll conducted by one of the leading political pollsters in the nation. The race would not just not be winnable; it would not be possible to get even close. The election is just over 30 days away; the candidate I would be running against is literally the most popular politician in the region (positives above Obama and Clinton and every other politician). With $2m in hand today, or a promise from Barack Obama to be in the district next week, it might be possible. But there isn’t the predicate to move people that far that quickly. And my fear in the end was that a wipe-out defeat would send the message that the reform message has no political salience. As our pollster said, the data show it does have salience, and could well be effective, but won’t be effective in this district in 30+ days.

I’m grateful to everyone for their support. As you know, I don’t shy away from losing. But choosing to lose in a way that is certain to harm the movement is not yet a disease I have.

I understand and, based on your data, certainly concur. A noble impulse, though, for which I’d commend you. — Larry

i see your logic and respect your judgment
might you ask your would-be opponent to run on the CC Campaign

Another Member of Congress, supportive of our work, is asking that directly. It would be a logical thing for her to do, and costless, since she does not need lobbyist/PAC money to survive in the safe district in which I live.

am i crazy for thinking there is a great human interest/political story in this
— lessig’s almost run for congress and formation of a Change Congress Campaign–

Better story (IMO) is how Lessig’s dalliance inspired someone else, and how the open culture movement is getting behind that person or preparing to find an open seat and and a candidate elsewhere.

Berkman center for Internet & Society at Harvard supports Larry Lessig for United States Congress

wayne last night points out to me ethan’s dynomite blog Don’t Stop Believing with its story of journey and ethan’s hope seen in it that internet can bring us to a better world.

My hope for the internet is that it blurs the idea of nationality, letting people find the most talented collaborators around the world, regardless of their language, culture or national origin.

all respect to ethan zuckerman
he lives his hope in action

action

we need press releases of support events to impel larry lessig along his journey to the united states congress

we support his Change Congress CC campaign.

we support not just larry lessig’s election but his three-point Change Congress CC Campaign,
which means moving it onto the agenda in our own district and conceptualizing it as a national and internationally supported campaign.
