On Wednesday, December 17th Netroots Nation will be hosting its 5th regional salon ath the World Affairs featuring Professor Lawrence Lessig. Previous salons have featured Sen. John Kerry, Van Jones, and Markos Moulitsas.

Technology visionary Lawrence Lessig will discuss his non-partisan reform initiative, Change Congress, an organization working to fight political corruption. There is a post-election mandate for change throughout our country, and Professor Lessig will lead an engaging discussion about putting the people back into the People’s House. You can watch Professor Lessig’s keynote presentation at Netroots Nation 2008 here in our video archives.

I’ll be leading a question and answer period after Lessig speaks in my capacity as a Netroots Nation board member.

The event has reached capacity, but you can follow along at home with the live stream embedded below (click title to view full entry). The program is scheduled to start about 7:15 p.m. pacific time and last until about 8:30 p.m. Those watching at home can take a shot at asking questions by posting a message to twitter using the #NNLessig tag. See you on teh internets!
