Glenn Reynolds

Please describe the work that you are doing that you consider to be the most innovative and of the greatest likely long-term significance.

Changes in technology are producing major changes in media and journalism. Journalism is becoming an activity, not simply a profession. In my InstaPundit.com weblog I have tried to foster the growth of amateurism in that field, by encouraging people to get involved and to make use of the new tools -- from Web publishing to inexpensive digital still and video cameras -- to bring news and perspectives to the world stage that were previously lacking.

Brief Biography

Glenn Reynolds is the Beauchamp Brogan Distinguished Professor of Law at the University of Tennessee, where he teaches Internet Law, Constitutional Law, and National Security Law. He is a graduate of Yale Law School, where he was Managing Editor of the Yale Law and Policy Review and a founding director of the Yale Law and Technology Association.

Reynolds clerked for U.S. Court of Appeals Judge Gilbert S. Merritt, has practiced law at the Washington, DC office of Dewey, Ballantine, Bushby, Palmer & Wood, a New York law firm, and has authored numerous articles and books. He is perhaps best known as the publisher of InstaPundit.com, a politics and technology-oriented weblog that Wired Magazine called the most popular on the planet.
