Electronic Frontier Foundation - Freedom of Expression on the Internet, meeting in Ottawa, Tues Nov 19 (with links)
From: "Peter Blanchard" <people _-at-_ planetfriendly.net>
Electronic Frontier Foundation - Supporter Meeting Tuesday November 19, 8pm, 2002. Ottawa, Canada "Imagine a world where technology can empower us all to share knowledge, ideas, thoughts, humor, music, words and art with friends, strangers and future generations. That world is here and now, made possible with the electronic network -- the Internet -- with the power to connect us all. And future developments in technology will enable us to access information and communicate with others in even more powerful ways. But governments and corporate interests worldwide are trying to prevent us from communicating freely through new technologies, just as when those in positions of power controlled the production and distribution of -- or even burned -- books they did not want people to read in the Middle Ages. But only by fighting for our rights to speak freely whatever the medium -- whether books, telephones, or computers -- can we protect and enhance the human condition. The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) was created to defend our rights to think, speak, and share our ideas, thoughts, and needs using new technologies, such as the Internet and the World Wide Web. EFF is the first to identify threats to our basic rights online and to advocate on behalf of free expression in the digital age." - from http://www.eff.org/abouteff.html "The Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) is a non-profit, non-partisan organization, founded by Mitch Kapor and John Perry Barlow, working to protect fundamental civil liberties, including privacy and freedom of expression, in the arena of computers and the Internet." - from http://directory.google.com/Top/Computers/Internet/History/People/Barlow,_John_Perry/ At Bridgehead, 108 Third Avenue, Ottawa.
