Creative Commons Presidential Debates

http://www.lessig.org/blog/archives/003763.shtmlBarack Obama is apparently asking that the upcoming presidential debates are released for general use. I like this. As someone who has moved over to Ubuntu in the home (still no decent iTunes solution!) I am becoming more of a believer in opening up stuff that should be opened. And certainly when people who are asking for my vote debate, that content should be free to me.I also note that Mr. Obama has a Twitter account. It isn’t updated much and the content is lame (if it said “going outside for a smoke” I might believe it more) but at least this means his team is aware of Twitter and Creative Commons. That is good. Maybe we will see some of the sillier DMCA stuff tossed out in a new administration.
