"Each year, EFF's Pioneer Awards ceremony gives the digital civil liberties community a chance to honor the work of those who have bettered our world through remarkable innovation, activism, journalism, or leadership," writes the EFF's Richard Esguerra. This year's awards honored James Love, Aaron Swartz, and Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras, and included a powerful keynote by professor Lawrence Lessig and from Taren Stinebrickner-Kauffman, the partner of the late, young Mr. Swartz.
"Amidst the grave challenges faced by our friends and fellow travelers," writes Esguerra, "The Pioneer Awards ceremony often grants a unique moment for celebrating the genuine joy of fighting for what's right. But this year's event also invoked tense and challenging emotions that underscored the urgency of our times."
