Gilmore on Privacy

Brilliant work today by Dennis Roddy in his profile of the ultimate digital iconoclast, John Gilmore. Gilmore was one of the original founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a sort of ACLU of the Internet that isn't working so much on civil liberties per se as it is to make sure that governments -- the feds, the states, and all of those little ones -- don't screw up the Internet. (The EFF Board has a deep connection to western PA. It includes not only Gilmore -- originally from Bradford, PA -- but also Dave Farber, now on the computer science faculty at Carnegie Mellon, and Pam Samuelson, now at Berkeley but for many years on the law faculty at Pitt.)
