Co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation and well known (no pun intended) activist/poet/essayist/lyricist for the band the Grateful Dead. His works include many articles, essays, and speeches on digital freedom, and the many injustices of the government against the computing community. Among his most notable exploits, he has been a fellow at Harvard Law School's Berkman Center for Internet and Society, and he was at one time a good friend of John F. Kennedy Jr.
Anyone who says they are against large corporations or the government monopolizing copyright and freedom of expression should look up John Perry Barlow's "A Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace", among his many other works on the subject
