Creative Commons founder Lawrence Lessig shifted his focus from tackling copyright to tackling corruption a while ago. He explains the reasons in an interview with Danish television’s Deadline show. One key aspect Lawrence sees in solving today’s problems is to fight the underlying issue which prevents apparently obvious solutions from being applied, namely, financial interests leading into a non-solution direction. And if I understand him right one method for dealing with this corruption in the future he sees in making more data about politics and politicians available online to then data-mine it for suspicious stuff using crowd intelligence.
