As the Cyber World Turns

I picked up this bit of irony off of Jack Shaffers post on
Jan 26th,2005 Titled "Blog Overkill"

Am I the only one who remembers how John Perry Barlow, drunk
on the Web nine years ago, issued his ridiculous "Declaration of
the Independence of Cyberspace"? In hyperbolic fashion, Barlow
wrote, "We will create a civilization of the Mind in Cyberspace.
May it be more humane and fair than the world your governments
have made before."

I believe the irony is found in the location which Mr. Barlow's
declaration was posted...........Davos, Switzerland , February 8, 1996

Were you listening back then Mr. Jordan???
Davos was biting you in the ass nine years
ago and your "fables" were not even written yet.
