Lawrence Lessig at the Chicago Humanities Festival

Last night's talk by Lawrence Lessig was pretty phenomenal. He gave a very effective presentation on the influence of money in politics, basically contending that its most pernicious effect is the obliteration of trust--the people's trust in their government.

You can view the presentation here.

FYI, Lessig is also the founder of Creative Commons.
