John Perry Barlow, "visionary" internet pioneer, press freedom advocate and Grateful Dead lyricist, has died aged 70. The cause of death is not yet known.

He graduated from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut, with a degree in comparative religion.

Cohn also defended Barlow from critics who claimed that he was kind of naïve for believing that the internet could save humanity's problems.
