Good evening readers, there is a fantastic podcast which was released on the 08/12/10 available here. This has excellent commentary on the ongoing Wikileaks situation by eminent legal scholars Jonathan Zittrain and Lawrence Lessig. It is also available on iTunes if you subscribe to the Radio Berkman Audio Fishbowl podcasts. They are free and a fantastic resource for listening to current debate released by the Berkman Centre for Internet and Society at Harvard University. Zittrain has also published on this issue on his blog here.

May I firstly extend my apologies to any followers of this blog as to the length of time it has been since my last post. I have been rather caught up in university work but had written down many proposals for blog ideas but never actually posted them. The result will be a flurry of posts over the next week or so.
My first topic will be the Wikileaks situation which has highlighted some very interesting issues in the sphere of internet governance.
EDIT - this story moves so fast things get out of date very quickly!
-Anonymous decided to abandon the attack on Amazon last night favouring to target Paypal again.

Hello followers, if there are any, time for me to actually post something. Due to work constraints this blog has remained virtually inactive all summer. I have now commenced my masters in IT and Telecommunications law at the University of Strathclyde in Glasgow and I intend to keep a much more comprehensive log of my opinions and ideas. It seems like it will be a brilliant course - I will be completing modules in e-commerce and internet governance for the first semester. Regulation of cyberspace and the various theories that surround it are where my primary interests lie. I am fascinated by concepts like Lawrence Lessig's "law as code" and the debate expounded by Jonathan Zittrain on the future of the internet as shaped by generative (or not) technologies. I am hoping that as I research more deeply into the area of internet governance I will discover new theories which I will critique and share here in the blogosphere.
In the meantime I'll be posting random technological items of interest and anything else that seems vaguely relevant.
Thanks for reading.

Welcome to my new blog. As the name indicates I will primarily be posting about the interaction between law and technology. However, it will not always be limited to serious discussion and I will update it with cartoons or videos which will diversify the content and provide some humour. I hope you enjoy it and feel free to contact me or comment.
