We broke last year’s record and raised $1274 for the Electronic Frontier Foundation this year! That is $111 more than ever before!
“EFF is a donor-funded nonprofit and depends on your support to continue successfully defending your digital rights. Litigation is particularly expensive; because two-thirds of our budget comes from individual donors, every contribution is critical to helping EFF fight—and win—more cases.”

This year? Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. Thanks to Mike O’Brien for this clip:

We at Intervention are always proud to support new and innovative ideas that spread community and geek culture. The original geek gathering, the World Science Fiction Convention (or Worldcon for short), is enjoying its 71st year this year and the location for 2015 gets voted on next week at this year’s Worldcon in San Antonio, TX. Of the three bids for the Worldcon in 2015, Intervention endorses and supports the Orlando in 2015 bid.
Orlando’s vision is one of inclusiveness – and their vision of being the first Worldcon to offer a virtual membership to allow persons to attend and participate in the Worldcon from afar – is one that Intervention supports. Their plan to promote the Worldcon beyond the traditional science fiction community with free admission to the entire exhibit hall, including the dealer’s room, artist alley, art show and Worldcon history exhibits will bring new people into the Worldcon and into the overall science fiction and geek community.
The fact that Intervention’s founders, Oni and Harknell just love Disney and really like the Coronado Springs Resort where Orlando’s Worldcon would take place, is just gravy. Please go check them and their amazing ideas out at www.orlandoin2015.org, or their Facebook page and they’re on Twitter at @OrlandoIn2015.
Intervention is renowned for being family-friendly. Check out our interview with the father of the convention’s famous “Dragon Baby”!
