A good quote opposing governmental control of the net

from the book “Techgnosis” by Erik Davis

“Cyberspace consists of transactions, relationships, and thought itself, arrayed like a standing wave in the web of our communications. Ours is a wolrd that is both everywhere and nowhere, but it is not where bodies live….Your legal concepts of property, expression, identity, movement, and context do not apply to us. They are based on matter. There is no matter here.” (John Perry Barlow)
