EFF Announces Pioneer Awards

I’m very grateful to the Electronic Frontier Foundation for naming me as one of the four recipients of its 2010 Pioneer Awards, which are intended “to recognize leaders on the electronic frontier who are extending freedom and innovation in the realm of information technology.”

EFF is not only a prominent voice of online freedom, but is itself a pioneer in confronting unlawful domestic surveillance, the use of the state secrets privilege by the Bush and Obama Administrations to foreclose litigation, and other difficult issues.  So it’s an honor to be recognized by this outstanding organization.

The EFF Pioneer Awards ceremony will be held November 8 in San Francisco and is open to the public.  For ticket information and other background see here.
