Default Cyberspace Declaration of Independance...

There was a jolly interesting doco on Beeb2 last night (The Virtual Revolution, recommend it).

I was particularly amused by John Perry Barlow's speech, which begins:

A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

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.


The full text, if anyone is similarly curious, is at:

A little dated, I feel, since Mr Obama is famously a crackberry addict....
