Talks

Keynote: Cindy Cohn

The digital rights movement started with the founding of EFF 30 years ago this summer. Let's take stock of where we are, what we've accomplished, which fights are still ongoing, and which are currently red hot (looking at your encryption). But then let's talk about where we go from here. We can only build a better future if we can imagine it, so how do we take what we've learned from the last 30 years - our successes and failures - and apply it today so that in the next 30 years we can honestly say that technology supports freedom, justice, and innovation for all the people of the world.
