Any chance you could mention what his name will be in-world ?

It'd be handy to add him to the Wikipedia article

"Richard Posner". :)

Hi, all! I'm receiving a good number of responses for this event! We're looking forward to having the Judge present at Kula.

When you are sending me an RSVP message, please be sure to include your SL avatar name to add to my list. *If the sim fills up, event entry will revert to a reservation basis. If you have made a reservation, but cannot make it - please try to send me a cancellation email/IM!

Many thanks :) Jen/Gen

Apocalyptic Terrorism? o.o

I don't think it's quite gotten that bad yet.

Yes Hamlet, I am aware the sort order on the name list is a bit off. Since re-ordering would mean that people's permalinks would be changed, I made a request for discussion on the topic, as well as one for breaking out the 3 lists into separate articles.

And while I'm here, plug.

the label terrorism is just the bogeyman the govenments/corporations need to spread fear and retain control.
somebodies figured this would be a good way of infiltrating it to the online world too (as we dont read papers and watch news as much as the rest). it's all smoke and mirrors, be suspicious

Hey, can RL lawyers get CLE credit for this? It would be a hoot to submit this to the bar associations.



The Constution is not a suicide pact, huh? A million dead in the US Civil War say otherwise. If Judge Posner's thesis is correct, somebody please inform New Hampshire so they can change the slogan on their license plates: "Live free or die."

I like the idea of CLE credits, and I'll bet it could be done though it has to be on a state by state basis.

My wife has an avatar and RSVP'd to attend, so I'll be watching over her shoulder. Really great idea, and kudos to Judge Posner for participating.

Is there a video transcript or audio transcript from this presentation? Can anybody assist with a link?

Hamlet Au

I'll be posting a lightly edited text transcript next Monday.
