Join us at the 2013 Pioneer Awards!

We hope you will join us on September 19th in San Francisco to celebrate the work of the 2013 Pioneer Award winners. The celebration will include drinks, bytes, and excellent company. Tickets are available now.

We will be proud to present awards to this year's winners:

Aaron Swartz
Late Technologist and Digital Rights Activist

James Love
International Access to Knowledge Advocate

Glenn Greenwald and Laura Poitras
Journalists Chronicling NSA Spying


We are also happy to welcome renowned academic, author, and activist Lawrence Lessig as the keynote speaker. Professor Lessig spent more than a decade leading the fight for intellectual property reform and now is part of the campaign to reform computer crime law in the wake of his friend Aaron Swartz's death.

EFF established the Pioneer Awards in 1992 to recognize leaders on the electronic frontier who are extending freedom and innovation in the realm of information technology. The awards celebrate those who have contributed substantially to the health, growth, accessibility, or freedom of computer-based communications. Their contributions may be technical, social, legal, academic, economic or cultural. This year’s pioneers will join an esteemed group of past award winners that includes Internet pioneer and inventor of the mouse Douglas Engelbart, science fiction author and activist Cory Doctorow, free software advocate Richard Stallman, privacy rights activist Beth Givens, and librarians everywhere.
