Segment Two- The Electronic Frontier Foundation

Tonight we are joined by Seth David Schoen Staff Technologist of The Electronic Frontier Foundation.

If America's founding fathers had anticipated the digital frontier, there would be a clause in the Constitution protecting your rights online, as well. Instead, a modern group of freedom fighters was necessary to extend the original vision into the digital world. That's where the Electronic Frontier Foundation comes in.

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is the leading civil liberties organization working to protect rights in the digital world. Founded in 1990, EFF actively encourages and challenges industry and government to support free expression and privacy online. EFF is a member-supported organization and maintains one of the most linked-to websites in the world at

Seth Schoen is one of the lead developers of the LNX-BBC rescue system(formerly the Linuxcare Bootable Business Card). He worked as a Senior Linux Consultant at Linuxcare for two years; he has also been an intern at Toronto Dominion Bank and at the Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory. His long-time interest in civil liberties led him to his current position as Staff Technologist at the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a non-profit organization based in San Francisco. He has been active in the Bay Area free software community since he moved to the Bay Area in 1997 from Massachusetts.
