A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace

by John Perry Barlow 

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.

We have no elected government, nor are we likely to have one, so I address you with no greater authority than that with which liberty itself always speaks. I declare the global social space we are building to be naturally independent of the tyrannies you seek to impose on us. You have no moral right to rule us nor do you possess any methods of enforcement we have true reason to fear.

FPR BLOG 106: DIABETES, THE GOYA BOYCOTT AND HARD TIMES.

Diabetes is one shitty disease. It's fucking horrible at times. 

Well, I guess AIDS may be worse, but still. 

Crazy thing about me is that my AIDS gives people superpowers. 

I'd try to be all macho and say women, but I'm not macho. 

So obviously I have diabetes. I hope I don't have to say that the AIDS thing was a joke...
