  • EFF is fighting these illegal activities on multiple fronts. In Hepting v. AT&T, EFF filed the first case against a telecom for violating its customers' privacy. In addition, EFF is representing victims of the illegal surveillance program in Jewel v. NSA, a lawsuit filed in September 2008 against the government seeking to stop the warrantless wiretapping and hold the government officials behind the program accountable.

    EFF is not alone in this fight. There are multiple cases challenging various parts of the illegal surveillance against both the telecoms and the government. This page collects information on EFF's cases as well as cases brought by individuals, the American Civil Liberties Union of Northern California and of Illinois, the Center for Constitutional Rights, and others.

Tumblr—1 billion page views a week. Zynga—100 million users on Cityville in just 6 weeks. We’re witnessing a generation of consumer web companies growing at an unprecedented rate in terms of both user adoption and revenue.

    But here’s a little secret that’s gone unnoticed by most. It’s women. Female users are the unsung heroines behind the most engaging, fastest growing, and most valuable consumer internet and e-commerce companies. Especially when it comes to social and shopping, women rule the Internet.

  • Cymbidium orchids, native to tropical Asia, produce large attractive flowers, popular as both cut flowers and corsages. Cymbidiums are potted plants grown in the home or a greenhouse. Unlike some other orchids, however, cybidiums can tolerate outside conditions, if moderate temperatures prevail. Cymbidiums bloom once each season. The time of bloom depends on the particular variety. Despite the reputation orchids have as being difficult to care for, growing cymbidiums is relatively easy as long as you follow a few simple guidelines.
