The TECHSHOW Board is incredibly proud to welcome Cindy Cohn, of the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF) as our keynote speaker.  Cindy is the Executive Director of this very important, non-profit organization dedicated to defending civil rights and liberties in this new, digital world.  The EFF champions privacy, free expression, and innovation through impact litigation, policy analysis, grassroots activism, and the development of new technologies.

The National Law Journal named Ms. Cohn one of 100 most influential lawyers in America in 2013, noting: “[I]f Big Brother is watching, he better look out for Cindy Cohn.” She was also named in 2006 for “rushing to the barricades wherever freedom and civil liberties are at stake online.” In 2007 the National Law Journal named her one of the 50 most influential women lawyers in America. In 2010 the Intellectual Property Section of the State Bar of California awarded her its Intellectual Property Vanguard Award and in 2012 the Northern California Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists awarded her the James Madison Freedom of Information Award.
