ITGWO 2018 Groundstation 03
Almost 20 years a go John Perry Barlow wrote his ‘Declaration of Independence in Cyberspace’. A manifest with a clear message Governments can’t and won’t rule the internet.“Governments of the Industrial World, you weary giants of flesh and steel, I come from Cyberspace, the new home of Mind. On behalf of the future, I ask you of the past to leave us alone. You are not welcome among us. You have no sovereignty where we gather.” In the current time frame were the nasa, China’s Great Firewall and FBI-agents lurking on the Dark web, the world is gone the other way with the internet!
