Mr. John Perry Barlow was the first to apply the term cyberspace to the place it presently describes. Mr. Barlow spent 17 years running a large cattle ranch in Wyoming before turning his attention to the electronic frontier and writing about the politics, governance, economics, and social implications of cyberspace. John Perry co-founded the Electronic Frontier Foundation with Mitch Kapor, and he remains its vice chairman. He was involved in the creation of Wired magazine and in his seminal article, "The Economy of Ideas," was the first to predict the tectonic pressures that would develop between existing copyright law and the Internet. John Perry has been a fellow at the Institute of Politics and the Berkman Center at Harvard. A songwriter for the Grateful Dead for 25 years, he recently co-founded Algae Systems, a company that is developing a system to transform sewage into jet fuel.
