Barlow is one of my closest friends who I have a lot of respect for. He is the founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. In this post, I would like to highlight a quote from a recent Wired article on the 20th anniversary of Barlow’s the “Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace:”
“It depends on the physical world and can’t exist without it, but to a fairly large extent, it’s another thing, unprecedented in world history: [Cyberspace is] an environment where people across the planet could come together and have a sense of political constituency.”
Friends like Barlow inspire me to fight the good fight with the ERA. How has the Internet shaped your view of the world and opened boundaries for you?
