Larry and John Perry Barlow on Internet Privacy and Security – in 1995

As I noted in my article last week for Forbes, my first collaboration with the late John Perry Barlow, back in 1995, was a report on the privacy and security imperatives for the then-new concept of electronic commerce.

In Barlow's memory, and in the wake of renewed concerns about these issues in Congress and the EU, we've made the report, "Five Privacy and Security Imperatives for Electronic Trade," available here.  Just click on the link above to download it.

Sadly, little has changed in the last twenty-plus years.  All five recommendations are as valid today as they were when John and I first proposed them.
