I’m headed down to Atlantic City for a friend’s bachelor party so I figured I’d leave you all with five links to read for the weekend. (I wish I could come up with a good reason there are five. Maybe it’s the number of drinks I’ll have tonight? No. Number of dollars I’ll gamble. Nah. Number of minutes sleep I’ll get. That could be it.)
1. This New York Magazine article about Lawrence Lessig’s molestation at the hands of a choir director is incredible. Lessig is arguing for another abused student in a case against the Boychoir school. The article’s long, but well worth the read.
1a. When you’re done with the article, read Lessig’s response to the outpouring of support.
2. On a lighter note, want perfect sideburns? Here’s your answer.
3. Is the future of television in piracy? This article argues that hyperdistrubtion has changed the laws of television and the industry will be forced to embrace new forms of distribution.
5. Finally, if you’re ever walked around New York and seen little stickers covering WALK/DON’T WALK SIGNS, you were looking at the work of Thundercut.
