This week's episode of Open Views is a re-broadcast of a talk from Cory Doctorow's Fulbright Chair Speaker Series, from the Center for Public Diplomacy. The talk features John Perry Barlow and John Gilmore, founders of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.

In the world of hacker culture, and by association, the open source and free culture movements, the most important official group is probably the Electronic Frontier Foundation (EFF). This is the group that works to protect your digital civil liberties no matter where in the world you are. The EFF is ostensibly an American organization. Their focus on the Internet, however, makes them quite universal.
