With a resume that runs the gamut from prolific songwriter for Grateful Dead, a fellow at Harvard Law School‘s Berkman Klein Center for Internet & Society at Harvard University, co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) and the Freedom of the Press Foundation, it doesn’t seem fair that John Perry Barlow should “be in such dire straits that he needs donations to pay his medical bills and living expenses.”
