John Perry Barlow is a retired Wyoming rancher (and native), a former lyricist for the Grateful Dead, and the co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a civil liberties organization which has been protecting the free flow of information on the Internet since 1990. He remains on the board of that organization. He has been writing about society in Cyberspace since 1988 and was first to apply that name to the global social space it presently describes.

He is the father of three daughters and his primary aspiration is to be a good ancestor.
