A movement is underway to draft former University of Chicago Law School Professor Lawrence Lessig (now at Stanford Law School) to run for the Silicon Valley-based Congressional seat recently left empty due to the passing of U.S. Rep. Tom Lantos. Lessig serves as chair of the Creative Commons project, has authored several books on cyberlaw and free culture, and has had a pretty intense conversation with Wilco's Jeff Tweedy on at least one occasion.
