In 1996, John Perry Barlow wrote a Cyber Space Declaration Of Independence.
The introduction is irrelevant.
The beginning is awesome:
Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.
'You weary giants of flesh and steel' - sweet!
Wow. Concise and uncompromising. David Blunkett should read this 'un. --TL
Rather reminds me of the opening intro from "Re Boot"... but perhaps that's the whole point. If not, then it's a rather stylish coincidence. --WJR Very stylish. --TL
Reminds me a bit of the Hacker Manifesto written in 1986.
