EFF Presents Pioneer Awards at ETech

Last night, three Internet superheroes received awards, and one even got a cape.

EFF presented the 16th annual Pioneer Awards to Bruce Schneier, Yochai Benkler, and Cory Doctorow (in cape at right, source: Scott Beale/Laughing Squid and Wired). The event was kicked off by a rousing debate between our own Fred von Lohmann and HDNet Chairman Mark Cuban on YouTube and the future of copyright. Thanks to our award winners, to Mark, to our gracious hosts at ETech, and to everyone who came out to the event!

Missed out on the fun? Then check out Wired's and Ars Technica's recaps, photos by Scott Beale and Quinn Norton, and audio from the YouTube debate as well as Cory's and Bruce's acceptance speeches. Kevin Marks has also posted video from EFF's Birds-of-a-Feather session.

Update: And you can now get video from the YouTube debate here.
