High Art! Or Because It Is Grim in the Bay Area and This One Made Me Smile

Deven Desai

Deven Desai is an associate professor of law and ethics at the Scheller College of Business, Georgia Institute of Technology. He was also the first, and to date, only Academic Research Counsel at Google, Inc., and a Visiting Fellow at Princeton University’s Center for Information Technology Policy. He is a graduate of U.C. Berkeley and the Yale Law School. Professor Desai’s scholarship examines how business interests, new technology, and economic theories shape privacy and intellectual property law and where those arguments explain productivity or where they fail to capture society’s interest in the free flow of information and development. His work has appeared in leading law reviews and journals including the Georgetown Law Journal, Minnesota Law Review, Notre Dame Law Review, Wisconsin Law Review, and U.C. Davis Law Review.

    Considering he had his legs lopped off in Mustafar, I must say he’s riding that unicycle pretty well.

  3. And here I thought the sight of my professor and friend, the late Ninian Smart,* bicycling through Isla Vista in his kilt, bare and barrel chested, could not be bested!


  4. As Richard Hecht said in his memorial notice for the Department of Religious Studies at UC Santa Barbara:

    “Ninian loved to ride his bicycle through the student community of Isla Vista to the campus. He insisted on never locking his bicycle and it was ‘pinched’ several times. He would ride leisurely, just at a pace necessary to keep him upright and moving forward, and he would be passed by other bicyclists, skateboarders, roller-bladers, and those walking alongside of him. But it was his kilt that turned many a head.”

    The video is a cultural mashup. If we were playing “which of these does not belong,” we would be hard-pressed to come up with any connection between Darth Vader, unicycles, and playing the bag pipe.
