EFF Announced Blog-A-Thon !!
Tell your stories about the first time you knew your rights online were important, and win a T-Shirt!

The Electronic Frontier Foundation, to celebrate its 15th Anniversary, is having a party tonight at 111 Minna in SF (where I'll be speaking with Kurt Opsahl, Violet Blue, danah boyd, Dan Gillmor and Jackson West, and I think ms. boyd has my most favorite quote on the event:

They are also having a Blog-A-Thon!

EFF says, "we want to hear about your "click moment" -- the very first step you to took to stand up for your digital rights -- whether it was blogging about an issue you care about, participating in a demonstration, writing your representatives, or getting involved with EFF. As a thank you, we've enlisted an independent panel of judges to choose from among your posts for "Most Inspirational," "Most Humorous," and "Best Overall." At the end of the Blog-a-thon, we'll announce the names of the three bloggers with the best posts on our website and in our weekly newsletter, EFFector. We'll also publish the three best posts on our site and send the authors a blogging "kit" as an extra thank you: an EFF bloggers' rights T-shirt, special EFF-branded blogger pajama pants, a pound of coffee, and a pair of fuzzy slippers."

Well.. get to it!

And look here or here for entries using the Blog-a-thon tag: keyword or tag.

(Thanks Joe, I corrected the address of the party!

Mary --

Make sure you go to the 111 Minna Gallery instead of the EFF offices tonight. That's where the event is. :-)

See you there.
