EuroParl ahoy!

We’re in. That’s pretty much the long and short of it. With no political pedigree and no large financial backers to speak of (go go crowdfunding!) the Swedish Pirate Party has earned itself one definite seat in the European Parliament. We’re gonna set a new course for Europe, if not directly this term, then indirectly [...]

This is what 5022 new members look like!

A nice graph starting that early January 2006. Note the  vertical line at the end. I have a little ticker playing a fanfare every time a new members joins and its still playing at 00:29. Every other minute or so. With any hope we will reach 20 000 members by the morning. Lots of demonstrations [...]

I’m the boss of the Internet!

Contrary to what Opassande(sv) claims, it is I who is Sparta…eh I mean the boss of the Internet! I rule all and everyone does my bidding! If the content industry needs someone to broker deals with they should turn to me. This goes double for you Pär Strömbäck, spokes person of the Computer Gaming Industry(sv). 

Mr [...]

The Pirate Bay Trial – day 11

Closing arguments. Nothing really surprising here except maybe that the prosecutor didn’t ask for the maximum  two years of prison time. Prosecutor Roswall claims that there are 64 ad spaces on the site and at an estimated 3500sek/week The Pirate Bay has earned over 10 000 000sek. Problem with that is that there are only 4 [...]

A history of Sweden’s Piratpartiet

Ars Technica takes a look at the history behind The Pirate Party SE. It covers a lot of areas, from the first line that Falkvinge dropped in a chat (on DC iirc) to Sweden’s broadband situation and Young Pirate. 

It doesn’t mention The Bureau of Piracy though. Not that we always agree with each other. But [...]

Rage is rising

The blog has been collecting dust since i couldn’t sustain my rage over the FRA-Law while working. But now it seems I’m getting pissed off again. Sweden’s most important political trial of the decade starts tomorrow and today saw the start of The Spectrial. The word, a play on spectacle and trial, is the name TPB and The Bureau of Piracy has given the trial and their activities surrounding [...]

Endgame

I got in to this a bit late and really wish I could have been there both this morning and tomorrow. But my schedule prohibits trips to the capitol, so the live web feed will have to do. The Centre Party showed that they could play the game as well as anyone else. All 29 [...]

EFF makes me laugh.

I found this article from EFF. I covers much of what I’ve already posted here. But the last line just made me laugh.

“If the Lex Orwell passes, Sweden may not need something so sophisticated as a supercomputer to hear what the rest of the world thinks about their new values.”

The supercomputer in question was the [...]
