John Cusack in hacker-land

How I spent this past holiday weekend: I flew to the EFF in a helicopter with John Cusack, friend of Boing Boing and of digital liberty. John's a friend, and one of my fellow board members at Freedom of the Press Foundation. He'd never met most of the FPF-ers or EFF-ers, so we decided to take advantage of the clear California skies and a kind offer from a friend who flies Steve Fossett's chopper (which has now been converted into a camera ship for motion pictures), and literally chopper in to hacker-town.
