The Moose as Metaphor
Just arrived inexplicably on our desk the other day (Museum Shop? Is that you, sending us presents?) - another book on Jefferson's relevance to today's issues of new technologies, intellectual property, and the laws that govern them:
In Search of Jefferson's Moose: Notes on the State of Cyberspace, by David G. Post (Oxford University Press, 2009)
As I understand it, Post compares the new world of the Internet to the infancy of the United States, and frames it in terms of the intellectual debate between Alexander Hamilton and Thomas Jefferson.
