nesson here:

yesterday in new york, seeing stuart sucherman, fred friendly’s producer, thinking of him now as i type these words, listening to bob seger and his lady sing the answer is the question. when trust is almost broken, stuart sitting before me heavy and distracted telling me the course of his success. told him my sex life with fern was great. he thanked me for telling him and went on. then stuart shieber on a bench with twenty minutes before our meeting with y.s.chi, stuart with a question wanting to listen for an answer. sitting on the bench with stuart i sketched the comic version of the two of us knights emmisary from the lord of education coming to engage the lord of content, and so the vision played out. then in our meeting probing, probing. the thrill is in the chase. y.s. off the record, conor there to witness, with his permission i would tell it all, let you listen to a conversation between the chairman of our provost’s committee on scholarly publication and the strategist for reed elsivier, vice chairman y.s.chi. (ys, with your permission which i would ask you to indicate if you are willing by editing this wiki to show your assent and participation. conor, please. indeed, instead of me writing to you about the substance of our meeting and next steps i would greatly appeciate you writing me and here with your understanding. i have suggested to my students in cyberone and evidence that they might like to come along on the adventure of exploring articulation and moderation of our university’s most engaging questions.)

conversation between stuart shieber an y.s.chi put me in mind of our cyberone conversation, mike fricklas and wayne marshall speaking to each other across the copyright divide, which puts me in mind of aaron brooks lovely project, and my hope to catch sucherman’s interest in bringing fred friendly seminars alive again in the university world of second life.

will we be able to do this as a course for credit at harvard law school, that is my question to answer today. may we do it, becca and scott and colin and rob and phil and all as berkman center clinical program, affirmative engagement with the medium. but first i have to get my grades in.
