I'm Anthony Crowe and I'm an ALM degree candidate in government. I've done a lot of work in non-profit education and I completed my ALB at Harvard Extension in 2010. I currently work in retail while taking grad classes. I attend this class online. I am looking forward to my wedding this coming fall. Although I'm very Internet-saavy, I've not spent a lot of time with wikis, so this is a learning curve for me. I recently read "Everything Is Miscellaneous" by David Weinberger which is one of the things that inspired me to take this class.

Hello, my name is Vladimir. I am from Slovakia (It is not Slovenia:)). After finishing law school in Slovakia I applied for LL.M. degree in IT/IP Law to Leibniz University Hannover, Germany where I spent winter semester. This semester I am spending as a visiting student at University of Edinburgh, UK, where I do only IP Law.


Greetings to all students in this class, my name is also Vladimir. I am originally from Ukraine; in the U.S. have been for ten years studying economics and quantitative finance, and, using the internet, have made remarkable discoveries about the role of the U.S. government in major political turmoils and military interventions as well as its manipulative religious infrastructure that keeps the society blindly devoted to the cause. Currently, I am in search for a school in Boston area to graduate from in applied mathematics and am working on creating a non-profit organization that will be a stellar counterpart to the conservative, control-seeking, and corrupt branches of the U.S. government, a transparency level of which I am attempting to examine using the research project of this course.

Yu Ri

My name is Yu Ri Jeong and I am a pre-law major in South Korea. Currently, I am preparing for transfer to a college in the United States to better prepare myself as an intellectual property lawyer. I am particularly interested in the relation between the Internet and politics, the reason I decided to take this course at Harvard Extension School. I hope to develop a deeper understanding in paradigms of the Internet and contemporary issues related to digital technologies.
