I couldnt quite remember who he was, but then it dawned upon me, he’s the smock thats been trying to ban what he thinks are violent games, because he’s of the opinion they are bad for society.
rettighedsportalen.dk – a place for all things copyrighted
I was checking piratgruppen.org (A place in favor of sharing things online) the other day, and found that a new site, rettighedsportalen.dk had been started by a former spokesperson of piratgruppen.org.

But it is still the number of peers The Piratebay had sometime during the past week.A peer is defined in the bittorrent world as one who connects to download/upload some part of a file.

The programming instructions which perform the transfer of bits from one computer to another is a technology.

Net neutrality explained
A link on Digg pointed towards a YouTube video explaining Net neutrality. This is an important subject, not just in the US, but everywhere. The Telco’s might own the pipes, but they shouldnt get to decide what gets to flow through them.
Why you should enjoy life to the fullest
Watched a short video clip on Digg today, about a guy who knew he only had a few months to live, and yet he choose to make the most of it. This should really be a lesson to alot of us, to enjoy life!
How will peace be established when…
How will peace ever be established between the large parts of the muslim world and the west, when young kids are being taught to kill for depicting a god in a way you dont like?
Well, thats exactly what a children show stipulated a few days ago, regarding the now infamous Muhammed drawings.
