John Perry Barlow, founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation has passed away.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation officially announced the death of it’s founder, John Perry Barlow, yesterday morning. A man who helped to shape the web into what it is today by fighting for our rights to a free, open-access, and secure web without censorship or surveillance.

For those unfamiliar with Barlow, I recommend reading “A Not Terribly Brief History of the Electronic Frontier Foundation” by Barlow himself which details how EFF came to be.
