From the EFF Web site:
The Electronic Frontier Foundation established the Pioneer Awards to recognize leaders on the electronic frontier who are extending freedom and innovation in the realm of information technology.
The International Pioneer Awards nominations are open to both individuals and organizations from any country.
I attended the Pioneer ceremony in San Francisco last year, and I hope to be there again this year in NYC. Did you realize that I’ve met (or just seen in person without meeting) many of the people about whom I blog?
