Lawrence Lessig -- A dazzlingly incisive presenter, Lawrence Lessig specializes in identifying deep systemic problems in public process, and then showing how they can be cured. Currently he's bearing down on the corruption of Congress by the practice of private funding for public elections through campaign contributions. As he did with helping fix copyright problems via Creative Commons, Lessig has a plan for reforming elections to reestablish Congressional trust and effectiveness. Lessig is director of the Edmond J. Safra Foundation Center for Ethics at Harvard University and author of "Republic, Lost."
