Stream the Celebration HERE!John Perry Barlow was a maverick in the ways of songwriting and internet freedom. Called “the uncrowned poet laureate of cyberspace,” and "equal parts beat poet and P.T. Barnum", co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, Barlow understood the importance of a free and accessible internet, open to all. As songwriting partner of the Grateful Dead's Bob Weir, he collaborated on some of the band's most beloved tunes. He was a gentleman, a showman, a rowdy conspirator, and jack-of-all trades. The world is a better place because of him.
We'll carry on the fight from here, John. RIP.
