Dec. 1 Jonathan Zittrain Lecture on "Minds for Sale"

You are cordially invited to the next ISP Speaker Series, scheduled for December 1 at 2:30 p.m. in Room 127 at Yale Law School.  Our guest speaker will be Jonathan Zittrain, author of The Future of the Internet and How to Stop It.  Zittrain is a Professor of Law at Harvard Law School, co-founded the Berkman Center for Internet & Society at Harvard and served as its Executive Director from 1997-2000. 

The title of this talk is "Minds for Sale."  Cloud computing is not just for computing anymore: you can now find as much mindshare as you can afford out in the cloud too -- a new range of projects is making the application of human brainpower as purchasable and fungible as additional server rackspace. What are some of the issues arising as armies of thinkers are recruited by the thousands  and millions?  A fascinating (and non-scare-mongering) view is offered of a future in which nearly any mental act can be bought and sold.
