Blog-a-thon Already Ramping Up

As announced yesterday, we've launched a Blog-a-thon to celebrate EFF's 15th anniversary. We've already seen some tremendous stories:

Joe Gratz tells of how he went from crashing his school's server to befriending the network administrator and fighting for technological freedom.

Frank Field talks about feeling empowered after tinkering with his Apple ][+ and the danger of controlling how people use their own computers.

Our own Cory Doctorow reflects on his first day of work at EFF - the inaugural Broadcast Flag meeting - and technology's potential to enable "practically anything we can imagine with networks -- digitize every book, connect every person, break every cartel, enable every voice to be heard and safeguard the posterity of every moment of human creativity."

That's just a selection from the first day. If you want to follow along or blog your story for consideration in our Blog-a-thon contest, find out how here.
