Hello NeXT Community: This one hits home for me , it is officially 25 years today that I've been selling NeXT hardware and Software amazing . It is also to the day 25 years when NeXT shut down their hardware production line and everyone took it as an omen and yet all these years later I'm still happy doing this on a somber note. RIP John Barlow , as a long time NeXT and Deadhead this one hits home for me doubly so I guess my plan is to write a book or books about all my experiences , this article sums it all up fairly well. https://www.macobserver.com/columns-opinions/editorial/john-perry-barlow/ Best regards Rob Blessin

While maybe not NeXT related this interview was a heart breaking view into his life:

The story does begin with and mention NeXT! That's one of my favorite TAL acts.

Somewhere I have a NeXT-related postcard with his name on it that I *think* was from the same appearance mentioned in that TAL story.
