Internet pioneers converge on spy museum

The Electronic Frontier Foundation is giving out its Pioneer Awards next week to some leading movers and shakers in information technology: Craig Newmark and Jim Buckmaster of Craigslist, Gigi Sohn of Public Knowledge and Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia.

The winners represent “vital, community-building organizations dedicated to spreading knowledge in or about our digital world,” according to EFF. The awards ceremony takes place May 3 at the International Spy Museum in Washington D.C. in conjunction with the Computers, Freedom and Privacy conference, which should produce some lively debate on the topic of “Life, Liberty and Digital Rights.” Michael Hintze, a senior attorney at Microsoft, is speaking on federal privacy legislation.
