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!

Stop breadboarding and soldering – start making immediately! Adafruit’s Circuit Playground is jam-packed with LEDs, sensors, buttons, alligator clip pads and more. Build projects with Circuit Playground in a few minutes with the drag-and-drop MakeCode programming site, learn computer science using the CS Discoveries class on code.org, jump into CircuitPython to learn Python and hardware together, TinyGO, or even use the Arduino IDE. Circuit Playground Express is the newest and best Circuit Playground board, with support for CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. It has a powerful processor, 10 NeoPixels, mini speaker, InfraRed receive and transmit, two buttons, a switch, 14 alligator clip pads, and lots of sensors: capacitive touch, IR proximity, temperature, light, motion and sound. A whole wide world of electronics and coding is waiting for you, and it fits in the palm of your hand.
Have an amazing project to share? The Electronics Show and Tell is every Wednesday at 7pm ET! To join, head over to YouTube and check out the show’s live chat – we’ll post the link there.
