John Perry Barlow Internet Ideas Symposium

The Internet Archive at 300 Funston Ave, San Francisco, CA 94118
Join us for a celebration of the life and leadership of John Perry Barlow, the visionary co-founder of EFF and the Freedom of the Press Foundation. We'll reflect together on his legacy for digital civil liberties, a fair and open internet, open culture and the right to know. We've asked a few key leaders to discuss what his ideas meant for the early Internet, how they have impacted the Internet we enjoy today and how we can continue the fight for freedom online moving forward.
