I am pleased to post Show #35, my interview with Prof. Cass Sunstein of the University of Chicago Law School, discussing his book “Infotopia.” Cass, like Richard Epstein, is someone whose writing I have read for many years. I’ve been a subscriber to The New Republic since the late 1980s, and I have regularly read his commentary on Constitutional law. With “Infotopia,” Cass enters a space whose population is growing — those who are skeptical of Web 2.0 utopianism and the abilities of social sharing. I do not agree with all of Cass’ conclusions, but his logic and analysis is compelling. I hope that you enjoy the discussion, and the insights and experience shared by this prolific analyst of the law and society.
I tried to configure some challenging musical interludes:
(1) There Is an End/The Greenhornes/Dual Mono
(2) Change Of The Guard/Steely Dan/Can’t Buy A Thrill
(3) ‘Tain’t Nobody’s Biz’ness If I Do/Jay McShann/The Last of the Blue Devils
(4) Working On A Building/Old And In The Way/Breakdown
