Joe Konrath is the perfect nominee for an EFF Award.
Let's face it, a copyright defender simply isn't going to

nice guy who is generous to colleagues and offers a hand
up to authors lower down the career ladder.

This is your opportunity to nominate a deserving individual or group to receive a Pioneer Award for 2010. The International Pioneer Awards nominations are open to individuals and organizations from any country. Nominations are reviewed by a panel of judges chosen for their knowledge of the technical, legal, and social issues associated with information technology. http://www.eff.org/awards/pioneer/ How to Nominate Someone for a 2010 Pioneer Award: You may submit as many nominations as you wish!
