About the John Perry Interview

Greetings Reddit,

You may know me as the Grateful Dead lyricist or the co-founder of EFF and Freedom of the Press Foundation. I'm the only person in both the Internet Hall of Fame and the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Twenty years ago today, I wrote a Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace in response to the god awful Communications Decency Act signed by President Bill Clinton. Over the years, many people have said many things about what I wrote, but I maintain that things, by and large, have turned out rather as I predicted.

Ask me anything.

Also, here's proof it's me: https://twitter.com/JPBarlow/status/696791064389103616
