Peter is one of the most prominent entrepreneurs in Scandinavia – unfortunately like Abba, Bjorn Borg, Volvo and Saab he is Swedish. And Sweden has violated all possible rules on his and his most known website project www.thepiratebay.org – by taking the servers and trying all kinds of tricks. Its off course VERY CONTROVERSIAL – but few people understand that this guys is doing everything with a big heart and 100% respect of internet. Like when all Danish ISPs (uhh this hurts) blindly followed the orders to start a simple version of the Chinese firewall – by blocking AllOfMp3 from central hold. When the first Swedish ISP followed and blocked AllOfMp3 – they contra blocked ThePirateBay for all users who where told to contact Costumer Support and get an explanation of why this mess. The ISP lost lost of clients – and suddenly they opened All the internet again.. Do the Google news archives search and you have hours of weird reading…Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 6 so far )
Today I had 5 sms before I got up – telling me that it wascool that Im involved with the new Danish Political Party “Ny Alliance” 🙂 . I picked up the paper – and saw my picture there among the network of the lead political figure Mr. Khadar. The only problem is – that I never met the guy 🙂 – I actually think support the idea of the party and even lended them a office (from a venture of mine that went south). And we are getting pretty involved from HelloGroup to help out on a couple of things. But since my mum called as well – to hear if I was getting involved in politics (it was unfortunately never a topic in my childhood) – I think its fair to give the facts to you dear valued (Danish) readers.
No – Im not getting involved –
1) Im still shit scared after seing Mr. Heimburger trying to go in – in 1998. And remember how he was hammered by all the dealing and wheeling behind the scenes. But he was also behaving like if he could walk on water – like I would 🙂
2) I dont feel smart enough – really! Im really annoyed about it – but I simply dont know what I mean about a lot a the aspects.
a) I think the wellfare model is FANTASTIC and I love it even more when I travel.
b) I remember where I come from – real workingclass until I was 12 at least
c) I also start to see the need of some reforms – so that we can attract international talent and dont kill initiative by sending people money for free forever…
d) I hate too see the ultra right wing – having power.
3) I dont have the time – and I would be really afraid to do this “left handed”.
4) They did not ask me 🙂
And then Im also getting really afraid not to sped time with my kids – Laura (6y) does not really like cartoons anymore – “They are boring” – and since I feel sold out on time – I would miss out on playing with Linus and his beloved “Cars”

For the first time – I have tried a real conman or should I say concouple – really strange. They got German investors and me – they got a supercool partner – they seemed really ok. And now they are taking the company hostage and playing stupid trying to blackmail us. WOW – imagine that I should try this. Weird. I will let you know what the names are soon – so the internet transparency will avoid this to happen to YOU.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 4 so far )
I don’t know why (or thats actually wrong) – but I just love Google so much. I love the search product and use it every day – I love the services and use the spreadsheet every week – I love the business model (they should do a song at every business schools every morning). Enough love to a 450bio USD company.Read Full Post | Make a Comment ( 2 so far )
