Long before I wormed my way into law school, I pondered the notion of becoming a professional musician. I didn’t worry about the fact that I had no skill; I figured if I could just get into the Berklee School of Music that I’d be fine. Now I see that Larry Lessig’s Creative Commons project has found its way to Berklee. The “Berklee Shares” website promises “free music lessons that you can download, share and trade with your friends and fellow musicians.”
Hopefully, this will give wayward occupation-seekers a way to learn a skill which, upon one’s engaging in it, leads to applause and joy. Congratulations to Larry Lessig on his very valuable Creative Commons project! It more than makes up for the fact that his profession is the training of would-be lawyers.
