Blogger co-founder voted "Hero of Freedom"

This is interesting. Evan Williams, a co-founder of Pyra Labs, was selected as one of the "35 Heroes of Freedom" by ReasonOnline. The award is to celebrate "the people who have made the world groovier and groovier since 1968."

"Evan Williams. With a little luck and a lot of technology, Williams did as much as anyone in history to provide the once-scarce freedom of the press to millions of individuals, through his co-founding of Pyra Labs, which introduced easy-to-use Blogger technology and free-as-air Blogspot hosting to the masses."
