John Perry Barlow, Internet Pioneer, 1947-2018

Cindy Cohn

With a broken heart I have to announce that EFF's founder, visionary, and our ongoing inspiration, John Perry Barlow, passed away quietly in his sleep this morning. We will miss Barlow and his wisdom for decades to come, and he will always be an integral part of EFF.

This is sad news, especially in this time of corporate media-driven lockstep conformity and jingoism. Sincere condolences to his family.

RIP good sir, you will be missed.

Now I suppose everyone will be offering their “Thoughts and Prayers.”

What exactly is that worth, minus ACTION?

Inquiring minds want to know!

His history of the Electronic Frontier Federation is fascinating reading. He was a fan of Harper’s magazine apparently, when Louis Lapham was there, a mark of good character IMHO.

We will miss your smile, smile, smile. Peace along the trail.
