Here we'll explore the nexus of legal rulings, Capitol Hill
policy-making, technical standards development, and technological
innovation that creates -- and will recreate -- the networked world as we
know it. Among the topics we'll touch on: intellectual property
conflicts, technical architecture and innovation, the evolution of
copyright, private vs. public interests in Net policy-making, lobbying
and the law, and more.

I've been interested in wicked problems since listening to Horst Rittel describe them in a 1986 talk. These problems are particularly hard to solve, not least because they tend to be unique and because how you define a wicked problem already starts to change the problem. One of the things that makes Kolko interesting is that he doesn't shy away from the tough stuff. This book should be great reading.
