Electronic Frontier Foundation Posts The John Perry Barlow Library (A Collection of His Writings & Documents About Him)
John Perry Barlow (1947-2018), a poet and Internet philosopher, was a cofounder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and a member of our Board of Directors from 1990 until his death. Barlow’s passion for life, liberty, and human connection brought him in contact with a staggering range of people and made him an inspiration all around the world—and to us. In his work as an Internet activist, he made us all think about what computer networks might be and to approach the digital future with hope.
Here, we collect a portion of his writings and documents about him. There is much ageless wisdom here, as well as commentary that is based firmly in the in the first legal and moral issues facing the nascent Internet. Enjoy.
