I want to be a pirate

We aim at founding the "Pirate Party Germany". It shall preserve freedom of speech and privacy of all people in Germany, and reformulate the anti-progressive excesses of copyright and patent law, in favor of a free knowledge society.

As heise online reports, the German branch of the growing movement of pirate parties has been founded yesterday. The party program is still rather rudimentary but its basic claims seem to be very much in accordance with what I propagate in this blog. I think I will definitely check out one of their real life or online conventions.

"Crime as a political problem"...

...that was the topic of my at the summer school of the German National Academic Foundation at beautiful St. Johann in South Tyrol. I don't have much time to report on all the cool things we did there but for now I wanted to post some of the pics I've shot. If you want to see more check my flickr-set.
