Grounded: Millionaire John Gilmore stays close to home while making a point about privacy

Or, mad hippie makes good, gets into computers, accidentally becomes a multimillionaire by being the first employee of Sun Microsystems, starts EFF because he should, and is now taking on the US government because of their unreasonable attacks on privacy in the post-9/11 world.

A fascinating character, and he’s absolutely right, although he can fight this more than most because of his riches.

At the very least of course, all of us should be able to see the laws that we’re being subjected to, and that’s the most amazing situation in the case John Gilmore is pursuing.
