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. ®
