S6 EP 8: Decentralizing the Internet with the EFF’s Cindy Cohn

The Webby Podcast is joined by Electronic Frontier Foundation's Executive Director, Cindy Cohn. She discusses everything from the early days of data privacy advocacy to the EFF's fight to decentralize social platforms.
I get this question a lot: ‘Are you more concerned about the government, or are you more concerned about the companies?’ The answer is there isn’t a distinction between the two of these.”
— Cindy Cohn Executive Director, Electronic Frontier Foundation
