The UK’s equivalent of our Electronic Frontier Foundation just noted its fourth anniversary. Their achievements, listed in the celebratory post, for the past year alone are impressive. See my earlier post about Jim Killock’s appearance, along with Danny O’Brien, on the excellent FLOSS Weekly podcast. This really proves the point that from the humblest beginnings, a startling effective public interest group can be formed, supported and make a difference.
If you are in the UK, they could still use your support. Consider becoming a member if you are not already or participating in one of their public action campaigns like the current petition against the three strikes rule being pushed by Lord Mandelson.
