Peter Lamborn Wilson is an American political writer, essayist, and poet,
known for first proposing the concept of the Temporary Autonomous Zone
(TAZ), based on a historical review of pirate utopias. He sometimes writes
under the name Hakim Bey. The pseudonym is a combination of the Arabic
word for wise man as well as any decision-maker or ruler and a
last name common in the Moorish Science Temple. Bey, originally a Turkic
word for chieftain, traditionally applied to the leaders of small tribal
groups. In historical accounts, many Turkish, other Turkic and Persian
leaders are titled bey, beg or beigh. They are all the same word with the
simple meaning of leader. Also in Turkish, Hakim means judge and Bey
is a generic word for a gentleman (mister) generally used after a name.
Anne Waldman is an American poet, born in Millville, New Jersey and raised
on MacDougal Street in New York City. She received her B.A. from
Bennington College in 1966. During the 1960s, along with poets, Gregory
Corso and Allen Ginsberg, Waldman became part of the East Coast poetry
scene, giving frequent readings at the The Poetry Project at St. Marks
Church, which she ran the project from 19661978. She has published more
than forty books. Waldman became a Buddhist, practicing with the Tibetan
Chogyam Trungpa Rinpoche, who later became Ginsbergs guru. With Allen
Ginsberg, she founded the Jack Kerouac School of Disembodied Poetics at
the Naropa Institute in Boulder, Colorado (now Naropa University). She is
a Distinguished Professor of Poetics at that institution.
