guests who must grapple with them. Guests will include academics,

whose puzzles may require solutions that span disciplines and
approaches. Students' final contributions will be to make progress on
one of the problems.

and will meet at Stanford. Students from Harvard will have air
transportation and lodging in Silicon Valley provided for the time they
are in residence there during January term.
Students must be prepared to take an active role in planning and
executing the course, and to embrace experimentation in course format
and with new technologies. Prerequisites: at least one course in
cyberlaw or copyright.
