Celebrate 25 years of digital freedom with the Electronic Frontier Foundation! Since 1990, EFF lawyers, activists, and volunteers have worked to protect essential constitutional rights as digital technology has transformed our lives. From defending against unreasonable searches and seizures of computers to challenging the NSA's mass surveillance programs, EFF fights for the users.

The minicon will feature an afternoon series of discussions and panels about the past, present, and future of online rights. The party will feature music, dancing, toasts, and the excellent company of the digital rights community.

Interested in receiving email updates from the EFF regarding this event only? Please opt in to this low-volume list.

The party kicks off at 8pm. We're excited to have special guest co-emcees for the evening, Cory Doctorow and Wil Wheaton! Cory is a science fiction author, activist, journalist and blogger. He's the co-editor of Boing Boing and the author of many books, most recently: In Real Life, a graphic novel in collaboration with illustrator Jen Wang; Information Doesn't Want to be Free, an examination of earning a living in the Internet age; and Homeland, the award-winning, best-selling sequel to the 2008 young adult novel Little Brother. Wil is an actor, activist, writer, and all-around champion of geekdom. He is the creator, producer, and host of the popular web series Tabletop, which pits him against celebrity guests playing their favorite board games, and Titansgrave, a role-playing game serial show.

Our lineup of guest musicians--Midtown Social, Dual Core, and A Plus D--promise to make this party extra memorable. Midtown Social is a high-energy, 9-piece ensemble blending soul, funk, and rock, and we're excited to start our celebrating with their distinct style and spirit. We'll also enjoy a performance from hip hop duo Dual Core, pioneers of the nerdcore genre, fiendishly clever lyricists, and long-time EFF supporters. A Plus D, also known as DJs Adrian and Mysterious D, will close off the evening with masterful mash-ups. A Plus D are the creators, producers, and DJs of Bootie, the world's biggest bootleg mashup club night. As tireless torchbearers of the mashup artform, the colorful duo spin a bootlegged blend of pop, electro, indie, hip-hop, rock, '80s & '90s retro, and whatever else moves a dance floor. We know from experience--they know how to bring the party.

In addition to special toasts, live music, and dancing, we have a few other fun surprises for our guests. You can, at your discretion, commemorate the evening with a opt-in photo at our photobooth. We'll also have art by Sustainable Magic, who bring creativity into the world by inspiring, creating, and educating with interactive art. Keep your eyes peeled throughout the night for their work around DNA Lounge, including welded flowers with motion-activated petals that bloom to reveal rainbow LED light shows amid clusters of fiber optic stalks.
