>>297354 Barlow was sometimes held up as a straw man for a kind of naive techno-utopianism that believed that the Internet could solve all of humanity's problems without causing any more. As someone who spent the past 27 years working with him at EFF, I can say that nothing could be further from the truth. Barlow knew that new technology could create and empower evil as much as it could create and empower good. He made a conscious decision to focus on the latter: "I knew its also true that a good way to invent the future is to predict it. So I predicted Utopia, hoping to give Liberty a running start before the laws of Moore and Metcalfe delivered up what Ed Snowden now correctly calls 'turn-key totalitarianism.'
Barlows lasting legacy is that he devoted his life to making the Internet into a world that all may enter without privilege or prejudice accorded by race, economic power, military force, or station of birth . . . a world where anyone, anywhere may express his or her beliefs, no matter how singular, without fear of being coerced into silence or conformity.
In the days and weeks to come, we will be talking and writing more about what a extraordinary role Barlow played for the Internet and the world. And as always, we will continue the work to fulfill his dream.

Heart attacks can be deadly.
Please pull this thread, content captured on previous thread by Swordmaker. Thank you.
Just saw that. Do you know why Q posted a pic of King Tower, Shanghai China, with comment :we see you (live)?
Someone said Obama is there.
Obama is in Monterey, California for a speech.
Thanks. Not sure why someone said BO was at the Tower. What is the significance of the Tower?
I thought that photo was of a building in North Korea that is purportedly unoccupied and after seeing interior photos it is not an office building either
Can you say Elon Musk??
For a very non-Q response: the Tower is where the ruling bad guys got to spend their last days before being guillotined (sp) or hung while the rebellious crowd mingled about below. I wonder who sells tri-cornered hats these days?
