John Perry Barlow: A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace:

You claim there are problems among us that you need to solve. You use this claim as an excuse to invade our precincts. Many of these problems don’t exist. Where there are real conflicts, where there are wrongs, we will identify them and address them by our means. We are forming our own Social Contract . This governance will arise according to the conditions of our world, not yours. Our world is different.

PS: Hier findet sich noch ein sehr persönliches Gespräch mit Barlow über eine NeXT-Convention und eine Liebesgeschichte, die tragisch endete.
