Nicole from EFF writes, "The Electronic Frontier Foundation is excited to host the 2016 Pioneer Awards in San Francisco next Wednesday, September 21 at Delancey Street's Town Hall Room."
I'll be there!
We'll be celebrating the work of the 2016 winners, who will all be attending and giving acceptance remarks. Join us to hear from trailblazing digital rights activist Malkia Cyril, data protection activist Max Schrems, the encryption researchers who authored the influential "Keys Under Doormats" report, and CalECPA champions California State Senators Mark Leno (D-San Francisco) and Joel Anderson (R-Alpine).
The keynote speaker is award-winning investigative journalist Julia Angwin, whose work on corporate invasions of privacy has uncovered the myriad ways companies collect and control personal information. Her recent articles have sought to hold algorithms accountable for the important decisions they make about our lives.
The 2016 Pioneer Awards celebration includes drinks, food, and excellent company. Get your tickets today and share this special evening with us!
