this land is my land

THIS LAND IS BERKMAN
words and music by some fine (anonymous) fellows

This land is Berkman, this land is my land
From Catherine Bracy to Amar Ashar
From Charlie Nesson the dean of cyberspace
Berkman was made for you and me

As I was blogging on the (information) superhighway
I saw above me an ‘end to end’ way
I saw below me generativity
Berkman was made for you and me

This land is Berkman, this land is my land
From David Ardia to Ethan Zuckerman
From Colin MacLay to Senator Palfrey
Berkman was made for you and me

I’ve browsed and clicked through some useless EULAs
I’ve posted clips of NFL to YouTube
And all around me are Global Voices
Berkman was made for you and me

This land is Berkman, this land is my land
From Jake Shapiro to David Weinberger,
From Terry Fisher to other absent friends
Berkman was made for you and me

The Chinese censoring, kids downloading,
with Facebook tracking every movement
But we will fight on, all-a-twittering
Berkman was made for you and me

This land is Berkman, this land is my land
From Melanie Dulong de Rosnay to Corinna di Gennaro
From Yochai Benkler our bearded guru
Berkman was made for you and me

Berkman… was.. made.. for.. you and me
