Join us to celebrate 25 years of digital freedom with the Electronic Frontier Foundation! Since 1990, EFF attorneys, activists, and technologists, along with volunteers, members, and donors, have worked to protect essential constitutional rights as digital technologies have transformed our lives. From defending against unreasonable searches and seizures of computers to challenging the NSA’s mass surveillance programs, EFF fights for the users.
On July 16, starting at noon at DNA Lounge, join us for the “EFF minicon,” an afternoon series of discussions and panels about the past, present, and future of online rights. (Detailed schedule TBA.)
Then, at 8 pm, join us for EFF’s 25th Anniversary Party, featuring music by Midtown Social, masterful mashups by A Plus D, toasts, and the excellent company of the digital rights community, hosted by emcees Wil Wheaton and Cory Doctorow!
