BBC to host Bill Thompson vs John Perry Barlow
Cambridge vs Cattle Ranch
Bill Thompson, whose Damn The Constitution polemic we published here , will take to the air on BBC's flagship Newsnight current affairs slot tonight. (10:30PM BST, 2:30PM Pacific Time)
He'll be joined by libertarian icon John Perry Barlow, co-founder of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.
You don't have to have a TV to watch them duke it out: the BBC's NewsNight page carries a link to the most recent program for 24 hours after its broadcast.
But if the shooting war starts, it might be cancelled.
Thanks for your responses to The Stuckist Net - a vision far less optimistic than Bill's, and we'll post a selection later today. ®
