Join us in San Francisco on May 5th for our 6th annual exploration of the fascinating, obscure, and trivial minutiae of digital security, online rights, and Internet culture. It’s the ultimate technology quiz crafted by EFF experts and hosted by our very own Cybertiger Cooper Quintin.

EFF’s Tech Trivia Night is a great opportunity to connect with peers in the tech community, and to celebrate the movement for civil liberties and human rights online. In-person teams will battle through rounds of questions—and cutthroat live judging!—to win coveted 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Place Tech Trivia Prizes at the end of the night.

Teams may be made up of 3 to 8 people, so bring your friends (or make a few new ones)! Don't have a team? No problem! We'll help form cool and competitive teams to compete to see which champion hive mind will take home the coveted 1st Place Tech Trivia Award.

$45 per person, or $40 for EFF members. Registration includes one seat at a table, an answer form with a writing implement, delicious tacos & churros, and complimentary adult beverages and soft drinks.

Parking in front of the venue is extremely limited and will be reserved for handicap use and drop-off accessibility. For additional parking, Mission and the surrounding streets have meters that don't run after 6pm.

All areas of this space are wheelchair accessible, and the event will take place entirely on the 1st floor. There will be 30" high round tables, with 8 people to a table. Lively music will be playing, and the host and judges will be using a microphone, so louder volumes are expected.
