thanks, max

Thanks, max…

(1) for speaking well of me to Jamie (who probably very, very vaguely remembers me from various conversations we’ve had through the years at Berkman and Duke) – he’s one of the best at what he does, and I have a huge amount of respect for him.

(2) for that second paraphrase:

“On any law school examination, the right answer to a question is almost always whatever gives the client maximum control and maximum options. That is why it is sometimes difficult for lawyers who come in contact with open source and free culture ideas to understand why the client would want to *give up* control.”

I have a whole half-written post about this problem which I’m now going to scrap- this encapsulates it  much better than I could.
