My first day of classes included Cyberspace Law with one of my favorite profs. (A friend of mine always shakes his head when I mention this class: "'Cyberspace' is like 'the Information Superhighway;' who says that anymore?!").
Obviously the famous Stanford law prof Lawrence Lessig came up a lot in our class discussions. I told my story of Lessig: A friend of mine Troubles in Paradox got us invited to the 4th birthday party of Creative Commons (Lessig's new-age copyright brain child). We were very excited because we thought Lessig was scheduled to speak at the party. Instead, he appeared as his online avatar from Second Life on a projected computer screen. Disappointing.
Anyway, my prof joked about Lessig's rise from a "boring law professor from Standford" into Coolness: "He grew a little goatee and started wearing black!"
