Re: the Media Critique

I can perhaps shed some light on this.

Toby Ziegler is a fictional character, as is this version of Lawrence Lessig played by Christopher Lloyd.  However, in real life, there is a real professor Lessig.  

However, there's no contradiction in Ziegler's character here. If there is any "cultural trace" in Ziegler's character that marks him as particularly American, it's merely the fact that criticising a system and working with it to change it or to do the most good are not mutually incompatable or even contradictory. 

Mr. Zubatov's naivete is likely exaggerated for the purposes of drama - it is, after all, a 45 minute show, and this was the "B" plot.  If anything, it serves to underscore the main message of the clip, which is that democratic systems only survive when accompanied by democratic principles.  An editor in chief not questioning the power of a central executive comes off as naive, yes, but this is merely cinematic shorthand.  A more accurate, subtle portrayal of a shifting from authoritarian to democratic principles would take too long for the entertainment value of the scene.

You would not believe how hard this video was to color correct.  Anyway - Jason Alexander, everyone, endorsing the site and movement I've been working so hard on: http://Mayday.US/

Egoraptor, I've often wondered why I didn't like Ocarina when everyone kept saying how awesome it was.  I think you just hit the nail on the head!

Hello Erin.  I'm an avid poker player, and I want to offer my help in hand analysis in the future.  I would love to teach you how to analyze hands the way a traditional poker player does.  

There are more than a few strategic mistakes you're making in this hand and the way you analyze it.  I'm looking for contract assignments and I would love to help you and Zynga put together Plays of the Day.  I think we could make a great team, actually.   

Can you send me an email at brian.boyko@gmail.com? I can send you my resume.  In the meantime, I hope that you wouldn't mind if I make a re-mix of this video.  I would love to be the Phil Gordon to your Dave Foley, if you would, and help players learn how great and how much fun Zynga poker can be.
