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."

"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."
