R.I.P John Perry Barlow

This will hit close to home for many of the members here. Even if you haven't heard the Grateful Dead songs with John's lyrics, those of us who believe in internet freedom have lost one of the good guys.

Fare thee well now...

How sad!  Barlow always struck me as an exceptionally intelligent committed activist for the cause of personal freedom.  He will be missed.

My 2 nominees for for greatest English-language poet of the second half of the 20th century have always been Townes Van Zandt and Robert Hunter - but if I were make it 3 best, Barlow would have be there.  A devastating loss.

From my perspective, an integral part of what I think of as the Grateful Dead.
