EFF Appoints Jonathan Zittrain to the Board of Directors

EFF is extremely pleased to announce a new addition to our Board of Directors: Harvard Law and Computer Science Professor Jonathan Zittrain.

For many of you, Jonathan does not need an introduction, as he is one of the true luminaries of Internet scholarship. His work encompasses the critical issues at the heart of EFF's work, including privacy, speech, digital property, and the role played by private intermediaries in Internet architecture.

Jonathan co-founded Harvard's Berkman Center for Internet & Society. He is the author of the pathbreaking "The Future of the Internet -- and How to Stop It" as well as co-editor of books documenting Internet filtering worldwide, "Access Denied" and "Access Controlled." He is a member of the Board of Trustees of the Internet Society.

We are thrilled that Jonathan will be joining EFF's board of directors. We look forward to his insights to help us further EFF's mission. Welcome, Jonathan!
