    You can be thoughtful in middle of life. What has happened so far, where should it go? John Perry Barlow did not use night before his 30th birthday to review or plan his career, but to attribute a humanistic instruction to himself. She begins by saying, "Be patient." Following 24weitere "Bids DesErwachsenseins". Admit errors. Understand humility. Live memorable. For years, text has been passed on on Internet. Because, in gentle ermahnendemTon, it is as touching as timeless.

    John Perry Barlow died on Wednesday at age of 70 years. Wikipedia writes that he has been a poet, essayist, cattle breeder and Cyberaktivist, but this is only partially true. The Director of Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF), Cindy Cohn, says: "Sydney not exaggerated to say that large portions of Internet, as we all know and love Esheute, due to Barlow's vision and leadership exist undgedeihen." Barlow has founded American non-governmental organization, Dieseit decades ago mainly legal for freedom of expression and civil rights iminternet fights, 1990.

    He did not come from cyberspace, of course, even though it is one of his most famous citations. It comes from a speech that Barlow 1996 held at World Economic Forum in Davos, famous declaration of independence of cyberspace. The text was already viral at time – even if silly expression had not yet existed. Because Barlow had hit a nerve because he understood feeling of life of an entire generation. Militantly He and his comrades defended this mysterious new territory, which until now had been populated by only a few nerds, but was already suspiciously observed by secret services. What was that room that came into being? Which, at outset, guaranteed anonymity and eluded state control.

    The internet as a utopia

    Hardly anyone in frühen1990ern had a concrete idea of this new digitalenParallelwelt. Barlow refore diagnosed a "future shock": "America entered information age, without laws or Metaphernfür appropriate protection and transmission of information." Währenddie wanted to fill new age with ideas, ors hoped that thing called Internet would soon go away again. Most people didn't even have an email address. Google was not yet established, Facebook certainly not.

    At that moment, a man who had worked as a cattle farmer until late 1980s found right words. In his declaration, Barlow speaks of emergence of a "global social space" that makes unbiased interpersonal encounter possible: "We are creating a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice according to race, economic power, military Force, or station of birth. "

    From today's perspective, this sounds almost criminally naïve. The dreams of Derfrühen network visionaries have not been fulfilled. Social spaces are zwarentstanden, but y have many anti corners. The net was able to reconcile Menschheitnicht. On contrary, it is now more than ever call to promote radicalisation of individual groups and GesellschaftlicheZerrüttung by Echo Chambers. EFF chief Cohn seems to anticipate se objections, because she takes Barlow in her obituary in protection. He also knew möglichennegativen effects, but consciously decided to put positivePotenzial in foreground. "So I predicted Utopia," she quotes EFF founder. That's why I predicted utopia to give a head start to this equally beautiful and unreachable place – account freedom.
