I serve as the Vice President of EFF-Austin, a Texas nonprofit. EFFA has a storied history closely tied to the genesis of the Electronic Frontier Foundation. Both organizations launched at roughly the same time, and out of the same event - a government entity misunderstood technology and the people behind the technology, and the following legal battle almost bankrupted the company that was targeted.
