I came across this very intersting article:
Reason: John Perry Barlow 2.0: The Thomas Jefferson of cyberspace reinvents his body – and his politics.
I love the section regarding Barlow’s conversation with Kerry:
I asked how he felt about civil liberties. He said, “I’m for ’em!” That’s great, but how do you feel about Section 215 of the Patriot Act? He said, “What’s that?” I said, it basically says any privately generated database is available for public scrutiny with an administrative subpoena. He says, “It says that?” I say, “You voted for it!”
He says, “Well, it was a long bill….”
Don’t get me wrong I’m still going to end up voting for him, as Bush has got to go… Four more years of Bush and I am afraid that we will be fully living in 1984.
