Given the area, it would be great to have someone who is both tech and policy-aware fill the seat- and it looks like that just might happen, with a 'Draft Lessig' group forming on facebook, featuring some of Lessig's old co-workers at Harvard and Jimmy Wales, among others, and Lessig apparently buying 'change-congress.com'. No word from the man himself yet, but he's been increasingly vocal about politics of late. If it happens, it would be a huge step forward for the representation of technology in Washington."
