Décès de John Perry Barlow

Oh, je viens d’apprendre la disparition de J. P. Barlow. Il était un co-fondateur de l’EFF et notamment connu pour avoir rédigé la célèbre Déclaration d’Indépendance de l’Internet (traduction ici et version originale là).


Barlow’s lasting legacy is that he devoted his life to making the Internet into “a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth . . . a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.”

Thank you, Sir…

We will create a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace. May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments have made before.
— J. P. Barlow
