Judge Kozinski

I heard Alex Kozinski talk a couple of times in the last 2 days. He's a fairly prominent federal appeals judge. Today he gave a speech he has given before about Electronic Privacy and why we have so little of it. He's worried that there's just too much sharing of personal details online.

One of his theses is that contemporary people's failure to protect privacy,
leads judges to think we don't expect privacy.

He gave an entertaining lecture at Boalt during my student days (2003 probably), and advised that if you wanted a judicial appointment in the foreseeable future, you'd best start running coffee for a Republican politician.

He was quite entertaining, and that sounds like a pretty funny remark. I wonder if that's how he got ahead?!

Indeed, and he had no shame in retelling it. I forget the details, but possibly was during Reagan's governorship.
