    Original Creator: Jonathan Zittrain
    Should we consider actors to be negligent if they fail to take precautions that require little effort, and would have mitigated the risk of harm?

    Original Creator: Jonathan Zittrain
    Should we attempt to reduce the standard of reasonable care into forms that seem more empirical—like an algebraic formula?
