You guys should check out zeitgeistmusic! I first thought it was reggae, and it was not, but it’s still pretty good :D
One of our more frequent comment-poster is in the band, so I thought I’d do them the small favour of pimping them, as a thank you for keeping the illusion alive that someone actually reads this comic. :)
The documentary is worth seeing, mostly since it is, how ever you see it, a huge part of our digital era history. Piratebay did, indeed, challenged and changed the world.
… also, it isn’t sugar coating anything.
As if you don’t know what I’m talking about…
It’s the day before the trial starts. Fredrik packs a computer into a rusty old Volvo. Along with his Pirate Bay co-founders, he faces $13 million in damage claims to Hollywood in a copyright infringement case. Fredrik is on his way to install a new computer in the secret server hall. This is where the world’s largest file sharing site is hidden.
When the hacker prodigy Gottfrid, the internet activist Peter and the network nerd Fredrik are found guilty, they are confronted with the reality of life offline – away from keyboard. But deep down in dark data centres, clandestine computers quietly continue to duplicate files.
So, the indieGOGO-campaign is done and over. Now I need to print and send out some tshirts and stuff.
The turnout was amazing, and I’m very thankful for all you dudes/dudettes support. THANKS! :)
The planing for the rally continues.
Tonight we have a rally meeting where we will set the route in stone, so that we can start applying for Visas. Exciting!
Ok, catch you all on the flip side.
