Remix Lawrence Lessig

Larry and Irene

Irene McGee, who’s famous for walking off the set of MTV’s Real World Seattle and who now tours the country speaking to students about corporate media, has just launched a campaign to come up with a hip new name for Lawrence Lessig. She had the idea recently while doing a podcast interview with Larry. She’s now taking votes on her blog.

My contribution was “LL CC”. Some other names that have been suggested so far are “Lsquared” or “L²”, “Double L” and “IP Freely”.
