Hardware Hacker Andrew (bunnie) Huang Wins EFF Pioneer Award @ Electronic Frontier Foundation

The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is pleased to announce the distinguished winners of its 2012 Pioneer Awards: hardware hacker Andrew (bunnie) Huang.

Andrew (bunnie) Huang is an activist who takes a push-and-pull approach to open hardware: he contributes original open designs and also liberates closed designs. Huang’s book on reverse engineering, “Hacking the Xbox,” is a widely respected tool for hardware hackers. Huang has also released an open implementation of a man-in-the-middle attack on HDCP – enabling overlays on encrypted video without circumventing access controls. As part of his long-term advocacy for users’ rights, Huang worked with EFF to help encourage more than 25,000 people to ask the Copyright Office for the right to install the software of their choice on their smartphones, tablets, and video game consoles. Huang serves as a Research Affiliate for the MIT Media Lab and a technical advisor for several hardware startups and MAKE magazine, and he shares his experiences manufacturing hardware in China through his blog.

…Awarded every year since 1992, EFF’s Pioneer Awards recognize leaders who are extending freedom and innovation on the electronic frontier. Previous honorees include Tim Berners-Lee, Senator Ron Wyden, Limor “Ladyada” Fried, Linus Torvalds, and Tunisian blogging collective Nawaat, among many others. Sponsors of this year’s Pioneer Awards include JibJab, JunkEmailFilter.com, and Orrick, Herrington & Sutcliffe LLP.

Bunnie is a hero to everyone who makes, creates and shares. Bunnie is one of the most generous, caring, thoughtful engineers in the world. Congrats bunnie!

  1. Congrats Bunnie! That guy melts my mind, but in a good way. His HDCP hack was huge. Really huge. You deserve this award!
