Joi Ito's conversation with the living web.

John Perry Barlow has the best liberal post-election post I've read so far...


Hey Joi, Barlow is a Libertarian.

While he's at it, he should spread the news to the folks in West Virginia and Tennessee (both local republican headquarters) that got shot at and invaded by a bunch of union-thugs.

Uhhh, more liberal crap...we've already found one mass grave with 300,000, can he explain that one? Oh yeah, how about the 2-4 million Iraqis and Iranians that were killed back in the 80's by, yup, WMD"s.

I wish they would get their facts straight.
