The Cybertiger returns! On Thursday, April 26th, Staff Technologist Cooper Quintin once again hosted players from around the San Francisco Bay Area, as we gathered for EFF's 2nd Annual Tech Trivia Night. A blatant rip-off of EFF's long-running Cyberlaw Trivia Night, this pub-style quiz features teams of three to eight players, all competing for the glory of the game, a handful of EFF swag, and a commerative Tech Trivia Tankard. Tech Trivia tests players' knowledge of fascinating, obscure, and trivial minutiae of digital security, online rights, and Internet culture.
Thirteen teams* spent seven rounds and three hours wracking their brains, furiously scribbling down their answers, and laughing uproariously, but at the end of it all, only team "U+1F984" AKA ? went home with the First Place Tech Trivia Tankards and an EFF swag super-pack.
Second Place honors went to Team Planet by half a point!
Trash Cats rounded out our top teams in third place.
*and a ringer team of EFF Staff that were disqualified when they named themselves the way too obvious "EFF Cheaters that wrote the questions"
EFF would like to express our gratitude to Tech Trivia Night’s sponsors for helping to make our Second Annual Tech Trivia Night a success!
Many thanks to Bob and Zelda Angus, Facebook, and Sonic! If you or your company are interested in supporting a future EFF event, please contact Nicole Puller.
EFF's sincere appreciation goes out to of the participants who joined us for a great quiz over dinner and drinks while never losing sight of our mission to drive the online rights movement forward. We salute the digital freedom supporters around the world who have helped ensure that EFF can continue working in the courts and with policymakers, activists, technologists, and the public to protect online privacy and free expression.
