Nominations are open for EFF's Barlow/Pioneer Awards

Every year, the Electronic Frontier Foundation presents its Pioneer Awards (previously); now renamed the Barlow Award in honor of EFF co-founder John Perry Barlow, who died last year.

Nominations for this year's Barlow are open until June 5: if you know someone who has "contributed substantially to the health, growth, accessibility, or freedom of computer-based communications" then you can put them up for this year's award.

The nomination form is here. I'm a previous Pioneer honoree and I consider it one of the highest honors I've ever received.

What does it take to be a Barlow winner? The nominees must have contributed substantially to the health, growth, accessibility, or freedom of computer-based communications. The contribution may be technical, social, economic, or cultural.

Who can submit a nomination? Anyone may nominate a potential Barlow recipient, and you may nominate more than one recipient. You may also nominate yourself or your organization. Please submit separate forms for each nominee.
