He graduated in 1969 with High Honors in comparative religion from Wesleyan University in Middletown, Connecticut. 

More recently, he co-founded and still co-chairs the Electronic Frontier Foundation. He was the first to apply the term Cyberspace to the “place” it presently describes. Having written for a variety of publications Mondo 2000, The New York Times, and Time, he has been on the masthead of Wired Magazine since it was founded. His piece on the future of copyright, The Economy of Ideas is referred to in the curriculum of many law schools, and his Declaration of the Independence of Cyberspace is posted on thousands of web sites.

In 1997, he was a Fellow at Harvard’s Institute of Politics and has, since 1998, been a Berkman Fellow at Harvard Law School. He works actively with several consulting groups, including Diamond Technology Partners, Vanguard, and Global Business Network. In June 1999, FutureBanker named him “One of the 25 Most Influential People in Financial Services.” 

He writes, speaks, and consults on a broad variety of subjects, particularly digital economy. He lives in Wyoming, New York, San Francisco and in Cyberspace.
