Barlow and Gilmore giants of cyberliberty free talk in LA tomorrow

A reminder that tomorrow night, EFF co-founders John Gilmore and John Perry Barlow will speak for free at the University of Southern California, as part of my Fulbright Chair lecture series. We'll have online audio and video afterwards, but this is one you want to see in person if you can get there.

Between them, Gilmore and Barlow co-founded EFF, Greenpeace and Earth First; co-developed the compiler that runs almost all the code you've ever used; wrote the Declaration of Independence of Cyberspace; founded the first great dial-up ISP and invented the alt. hierarchy; wrote the Grateful Dead's best lyrics and much more — Gilmore philanthropic work includes relief for victims of Guantanamo Bay, lawsuits against the Attorney General over the right to fly anonymously, and much more.

The two are dynamic, exciting speakers and I'm immensely proud to be presenting them tomorrow night. I hope to see you there.

Where: University of Southern California main campus, Annenberg School of Communications, Room 207 (Los Angeles)

When: Tuesday, November 14, 7PM-9PM.
