      The Zittrain article in Boston Review has responses by Stallman, Varian, Dave Clark, Bruce Owen, Roger Grimes, and….Susan Crawford. See:

      Thanks Josh

      I didn’t link there because it’s not a permalink – it’s a bit short-sighted of the BR not to link directly to the responses from the article itself eh? Or maybe it’s deliberate – they want to drive traffic to the front door.

      Jonathan spoke on the same topic at a book release party at the Berkman Center 6 days later. Video is available.

      He also spoke at Princeton. Video, very good Q&A starting 1 hour in.

      An interview on ABC’s Ahead of the curve briefly summarizes his position.
