EFF Pioneer Awards tomorrow night in San Diego at ETech

The Electronic Frontier Foundation's Richard Esguerra sez,

If you live in Southern California or happen to be going to ETech in San Diego, come and hang out at the EFF Pioneer Awards fundraiser on Tuesday night!

This year, the winners are the Mozilla Foundation and its Chairman Mitchell Baker, University of Ottawa Professor Michael Geist, and AT&T whistleblower Mark Klein. Past winners include Linux creator Linus Torvalds, security researcher Bruce Schneier, and Cory Doctorow.

Michael Robertson, the Founder and CEO of MP3.com, Linspire, MP3tunes, and Gizmo5, will keynote the ceremony with his talk: "What to Expect When You're Expecting... To Be Sued".

The awards ceremony is open to the public.

  1. Curses! Devophill, you have beaten me to the proverbial punch, although I did feel smart for the 30 seconds between decoding and clicking the comments link. Personally, I would include the spaces, as there are some areas of white space between the letters.

    I like the design, the colors and placement, although I will say that the large lowercase ‘a’ in the font is a little … different.

  2. What I like is that, I think, the design of the award has changed but little since I made it up for the first awards.

    At least I think so. So hard to know at this distance.
