Relying on the government to protect your privacy is like asking a peeping Tom to install your window blinds.
John Perry Barlow
Founder, Electronic Frontier Foundation
“John Perry Barlow (1947-2018) was well known around the world in certain circles. He was a lyricist for the Grateful Dead and wrote many of Bob Weir’s songs. He founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation in hopes of creating a safe internet. He had the foresight to see what could happen. I just attended his memorial and was reminded of this quote from John which inspires me by its truth, by its boldness, and by reminding me that it’s a different world now. It reminds me to remember to do what I need to do to work for the change to make it better.”
