EFF Farewell From Shari Steele 3/30/15
Today is the start of my last week as an employee of the Electronic Frontier Foundation.  I will be leaving after nearly 15 years as EFF's President and Executive Director, having started as a Staff Attorney back in 1992.  As I wrap up things here, I've been thinking a lot about where we've been and where we are now, and I thought it would be fun to share some of my reflections in a final blog post. EFF was founded in July of 1990 in response to a series of raids on small bulletin board systems (BBSs) that were believed to have received a stolen electronic document.  John Perry Barlow does a fantastic job of explaining that early history, so I won't go into that here.  But EFF is turning 25 this summer, so keep your eyes open for lots of upcoming celebrations.

Title: U.S. Report Weighs Impact of E-Commerce

Source: New York Times (CyberTimes) 4/16/98
Issue: Electronic Commerce
Description: Information technology is growing twice as fast as the overall economy according to a new study from the Department of Commerce. The study also finds: Internet traffic has doubled every 100 days; Internet commerce among business will likely surpass $300 billion by 2002; in just 4 years, the Internet has surpassed 50 million users -- for radio it took 38 years, for TV 13 years; in 1994, 3 million people were connected to the Internet -- by the end of 1997, 100 million were using it; inflation would have ben 3.1% in 1997 without information technology (total inflation in '97 was 2%); and information technology industry workers earn an average of $46,000 compared to an average of $28,000 for the private sector overall. The report recommends that governments stay out of the growing industry.
