David Cassel:

It’s easy to list the achievements of John Perry Barlow — everything from co-founding the Electronic Frontier Foundation to writing lyrics for the Grateful Dead. But it’s harder to quantify the amount of inspiration he delivered to the internet in the early 1990s. In the truest spirit of the word pioneer, he created a vision that helped shape the world that was to come.

This is a great compilation of stories, quotes, and personal remembrances of a man to whom we all owe a debt of gratitude. Whether we know it or not.
